The collection provides new perspectives on central works of Holocaust scholarship and representation, from the books of Hannah Arendt and Ruth Kluger to films such as Claude Lanzmanns Shoah and Steven Spielbergs Schindlers List. Interviews with survivors and their descendants draw new attention to the significance of womens 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 books first chapter, the focus on womens and gender issues in this collection complicates familiar and outworn categories, and humanizes the past in powerful ways.
