dc.description.abstractThis study analyzes eleven memoirs written by female, Jewish Auschwitz survivors to demonstrate that their experiences within the camp were complex. Though similar to men’s in some ways, only women had to cope with sex specific issues such as pregnancy, the threat of infertility, or amenorrhea. Other experiences, such as the shaving of their heads, affected women differently than men. By studying the voices of these eleven women, while recognizing they cannot and should not speak for all females who were interned in Auschwitz, this study proves that their experiences were dissimilar enough so that male Auschwitz survivors should not be allowed to continue to speak for all who survived.
