These powerful oral testimonies provide an important historical record
of women's experiences during the Holocaust.

In Mothers, Sisters, Resisters, 25 survivors of the Holocaust furnish

compelling and historically vital testimony that illuminates and explores
Jewish women's experiences during that terrible period. In entries that
preserve each voice, personality, and style, survivors describe their efforts
to evade Nazi laws and subsequent dehumanization, protect their children
and siblings, and maintain their Jewish identity.

Throughout each narrative, from Brandla Small's description of having
her child dragged from her arms at Auschwitz, to Eva Schonbrun's remembrances
of her sister who refused to leave her siblings and save herself, to Emilie
Schindler's account of rescuing Jews left abandoned on a cattle car, we
become intimately involved with each woman's struggle and eventual survival.
We also gain a new appreciation and understanding of the Holocaust experiences
unique to women.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An important original contribution to the fields of Holocaust history and women's studies. The stories are compelling, detailed, varied, and nicely balanced geographically. Gurewitsch's analysis is reasoned and scholarly, without excluding or diminishing the role that faith played in sustaining the survivors."--Myrna Goldenberg, University of Maryland
