Women and the Holocaust: New Perspectives and Challenges expands the existing scholarship on women and the Holocaust adopting current approaches to gender and focusing on texts and contexts from Central-Eastern Europe.
The authors complicate earlier approaches by considering the intersections of gender and nation, region, sexuality, but also de-universalize masculine narratives about the Holocaust.
Within these new perspectives, the communist regimes after WWII often turn out to be a new and necessary framework for studying women and the Holocaust.
This truly international volume features contributions by eminent authors, including pioneers in the field, as well as upcoming literary scholars and historians who delve into previously unmapped archives, explore cinematic representations and digital testimonies.
