A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Using testimonies, Nazi documents, memoirs, and artistic representations, this volume broadens and deepens comprehension of Jewish women s experiences of rape and other forms of sexual violence during the Holocaust. The book goes beyond previous studies, and challenges claims that Jewish women were not sexually violated during the Holocaust. This anthology by an interdisciplinary and international group of scholars addresses topics such as rape, forced prostitution, assaults on childbearing, artistic representations of sexual violence, and psychological insights into survivor trauma. These subjects have been relegated to the edges or completely left out of Holocaust history, and this book aims to shift perceptions and promote new discourse.

From the Back Cover:

This anthology by an interdisciplinary and international group of scholars addresses topics such as rape, forced prostitution, assaults on childbearing, artistic representations of sexual violence, and psychological insights into survivor trauma. These subjects have been relegated to the edges or completely left out of Holocaust history, and this book aims to shift perceptions and promote new discourse.
"The Holocaust horrors suffered by males and females alike have been rightly memorialized in histories and museums, but the sexual violence suffered by females has rarely been recorded. Perhaps we would have been better able to prevent the rapes in the former Yugoslavia and the Congo if we had not had to wait more than sixty years to hear the truths that are anthologized in Sexual Violence against Jewish Women during the Holocaust. We owe the editors and the authors they assembled a debt of gratitude for a well-documented warning that sexual violence is a keystone of genocide." Gloria Steinem, feminist writer and organizer, co-founder of Women's Media Center
"Challenging conventional interpretations by highlighting evidence that has been ignored, downplayed, or even silenced, this book, as courageous as it is sensitive, significantly expands scholarship about the Holocaust's extremity and intensifies imperatives to resist every kind of sexual abuse." John K. Roth, Founding Director, Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights, Claremont McKenna College
"This book touches upon a deeply troubling and too long ignored topic. It was not only the Nazis and their allies who abused Jewish women, but Jews, non-Jewish prisoners, and even liberators did as well. The editors and contributors to this volume deserve great credit for addressing this painful topic." Deborah E. Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies, Emory University
