Presented by the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in partnership with the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center.
Series held via Zoom every Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. between October 28th and November 18th
Women’s Holocaust diaries, with the exception of Anne Frank, have not become a part of the canon of Holocaust literature. This remote course will examine Renata Lacqueur’s unpublished and Hanna Levy-Hass’ published diaries from Bergen-Belsen, focusing on their recollections of gender-specific experiences of the Holocaust, including motherhood, marriage, and sexualized violence. Presented in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University – Siegal Lifelong Learning.
