Women in the Holocaust


How did women's Holocaust experiences differ from those of men? An interdisciplinary exploration of gender in Central European families, in ghettos, camps, and resistance, this course examines connections between the Holocaust and present day manifestations of anti-Semitism, sexism, homophobia, and nationalism. Readings are drawn from history, women's studies, and Holocaust memoirs. Cross-listed as IIHGS 254. Occasionally.
