Different Voices: Women and the Holocaust

Join MHM Co-President Sue Hampel as she applies gender as a lens for looking at the Holocaust in this stimulating lecture. 

Different Voices: Women and the Holocaust will consider the ‘”female voice” to shed light on Jewish women’s experiences during the Holocaust by discussing three case studies:

  • The reaction and responses of Jewish women living in Nazi Germany
  • The coping strategies women employed in the ghettos and concentration camps
  • The heroism of female resistors

By examining diaries, documents and testimonies, Sue will assess the “double jeopardy” that Jewish women faced on a daily basis during the Holocaust.
