Did Gender Matter during the Holocaust?

Marion Kaplan is Skirball Professor of Modern Jewish History at New York University and author of Between Dignity and Despair: Jewish Life in Nazi Germany. One of three books by Kaplan to have won the National Jewish Book Award, this volume, published in 1998, was among the first to explore how gender influenced individual and collective Jewish responses to Nazi policy. Since then, research on gender and the Holocaust has proliferated. Join us as Kaplan discusses the state of the field before and since the release of her pivotal and seminal work.
