WOMEN AND HOLOCAUST

New Perspectives and Challenges

Edited by Andrea Pető, Louise Hecht, Karolina Krauska

Andrea Pető is a Professor at the Department of Gender Studies at Central European University, Budapest.

Louise Hecht is a senior lecturer in Jewish History and Israel Studies at the Kurt-and-Ursula-Schubert Center for Jewish Studies, Palacký University, Olomouc, CZ

Karolina Krasuska is an Assistant Professor at the American Studies Center at the University of Warsaw, Poland and a member of the research group “Literature and Gender” at the Institute for Literary Research at the Polish Academy of Sciences.

This collection of essays expands the existing scholarship on women and the Holocaust adopting current approaches to gender studies and focusing on the texts and context from Central-Eastern Europe. The authors complicate earlier approaches by considering the intersections of gender, region, nation, and sexuality, often within specifically delineated national settings, including the Czech/German, Hungarian, Hungarian/Austrian, Lithuanian, Polish/Israeli, Romanian/US-American, and Slovak. In these studies, the communist regimes after World War II often provide a productive 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.

The volume expands into what gender studies have become today, critically incorporating the newest developments in gender theory, including masculinity and queer studies or the theory of intersectionality.
