Writing Jewish Women's Lives seminar: Zoë Waxman, 'Thinking about Women and the Holocaust'

Zoë Waxman, 'Thinking about Women and the Holocaust'

Part of the Vera Fine-Grodzinski Programme for Writing Jewish Women's Lives

Thinking about both the women who survived and who did not survive the Holocaust demonstrates that especially under extreme conditions gender continues to operate as an important arbiter of experience. Whilst men and women were both sentenced to the same fate, gender nevertheless operated as a crucial signifier for survival.

Zoë Waxman, is Professor of Holocaust History at the University of Oxford. She is the author of Writing the Holocaust: memory, testimony, representation (2006), Anne Frank (2015), and Women in the Holocaust: A Feminist History (2017), as well as numerous articles relating to the Holocaust and genocide.
