This lecture will look back to the beginnings of research on women and/or gender and the Holocaust. The talk will describe the first workshops that attempted to raise this question and the first books to offer some answers. Besides discussing how the field grew, it will focus on showing how a women’s and gender history perspective made a difference in understanding the Holocaust. It will raise women’s and men’s different perceptions and different reactions at home, in ghettoes, and in camps and it will look forward to new areas of research that also highlight women’s and gender studies.
The annual public Holocaust lecture series was made possible as a result of the generous bequest to the University by Fanni Bogdanow (1927-2013), a former Professor of French and Medieval Studies at Manchester and a child refugee on the Kindertransporte. Previous Bogdanow Lectures were delivered by eminent historians in the field, including Christopher Browning, Tony Kushner, Dina Porat and Oscar winning director Laslo Nemes.
