Women and the Holocaust brings together essays by leading scholars in the field of Shoah Studies that derive from disciplines such as literary criticism, religious studies, history, sociology, and film studies while focusing on the unique experiences of women in the Holocaust. These scholars analyze how these experiences are represented in cultural media, how these experiences are remembered, and how they differ from men's experiences. This collection seeks to redress the marginalization of women in the recounting of the devastation of European Jewry. It addresses the situation of women suffering for their Jewishness, and the memorialization of this suffering in which they found expression. The contributors search for the unique aspects of this expression by analyzing women's portrayals and texts, and by evaluating the unique voice of women as witnesses to the Holocaust.

The edited volume adds to this small but growing literature that gives voice to women's experiences. It shows a variety of way in which scholars can highlight women's experiences by using gender as an analytical category in understanding how the Holocaust victimized women and men differently> -- Lynn Rapaport Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal Of Jewish Studies, Summer 2002 Vol. 20, No.4 Like all good books on the Shoah, Fuchs' is a call to vigilance-for people of all genders> -- Tobe Levin University Of Maryland In Europe Like all good books on the Shoah, Fuchs' is a call to vigilance-for people of all genders -- Tobe Levin University Of Maryland In Europe The edited volume adds to this small but growing literature that gives voice to women's experiences.
