Different Horrors / Same Hell

Gender and the Holocaust

Different Horrors, Same Hell brings together a variety of essays demonstrating the breadth of contributions that feminist theory and gender analysis make to the study of the Holocaust. The collection provides new perspectives on central works of Holocaust scholarship and representation, from the books of Hannah Arendt and Ruth Klüger to films such as Claude Lanzmann's Shoah and Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List. Interviews with survivors and their descendants draw new attention to the significance of women's roles and family structures during and in the aftermath of the Holocaust, and interviews and archival research reveal the undercurrents of sexual violence within the Final Solution. As Doris Bergen shows in the book's first chapter, the focus on women's and gender issues in this collection "complicates familiar and outworn categories, and humanizes the past in powerful ways."

Endorsement

"The book's contributions come from a formidable, impressive, and multigenerational group of Holocaust scholars. With its interdisciplinarity and international perspectives, Different Horrors, Same Hell will make important contributions to Holocaust studies and, in particular, to scholarship about women and gender in that context."—John K. Roth, Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College

"The voices vary widely, from the mystical to the strident, from the autobiographical to the scholarly. Such diversity provides texture to the anthology and makes the reading experience layered and multifaceted. These essays break new ground in format and/or subject matter, bringing gendered analysis to new levels of nuance and insight."—Dr. Elizabeth Baer, author of The Golem Redux: From Prague to Post- Holocaust Fiction
