About this event

Please join us for a four-week course 

Different Voices: Women and the Holocaust will apply gender as a lens for understanding the Holocaust. More than 2 million girls and women were murdered during the Holocaust, and their experiences must be understood for their uniqueness. Over the course of 4-weeks we will consider the ‘female voice’ to shed light on Jewish women’s experiences during the Holocaust by examining ghettos, camps, hiding, and resistance. By considering diaries, documents, and testimonies, we will delve into the lived experience that Jewish women faced on a daily basis during the Holocaust and the lessons we can take into the world today.

The course will be facilitated by Head of Exhibitions and Programming Dr Breann Fallon and Co-President Sue Hampel OAM with each evening dedicated to a particular theme.
