Here, they spent the rest of the war working for their own lives/5(86). Women during the Holocaust. The Nazi regime targeted all Jews, both men and women, for persecution and eventually death. The regime frequently subjected women, however, both Jewish and non-Jewish, to brutal persecution that was sometimes unique to the gender of the victims. Nazi ideology also targeted Roma (Gypsy) women, Polish women, and women with disabilities living in institutions. Loved this book.

Different Voices is the most thoroughgoing examination of women's experiences of the Holocaust ever compiled. It gathers together - for the first time in a single volume - the latest insights of scholars, the powerful testimonies of survivors, and the eloquent reflections of writers, theologians, and philosophers. Women in the Holocaust is a powerful book. It is powerful because of the nuanced account of female experiences to which Holocaust research has paid less attention so far. And it is powerful because it places womenâs voices at the centre.
