Women’s experience of the Holocaust remains a marginal subject. Even recent studies which claim to offer a comprehensive account tend to ignore or downplay the specific importance of women’s testimony. As we prepare to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Brana Gurewitsch’s path-breaking Mothers, Sisters, Resisters, Zoë Waxman will seek to explain why it is that women are still being silenced, and why motherhood, in particular, deserves serious attention.
