Book cover of Sexual Violence Against Jewish Women During the HolocaustPlease Join Us for a Panel and Speakout on:
Sexual Violence during the Holocaust and Other Genocides
To mark the publication of Sexual Violence against Jewish Women during the Holocaust
2-4 pm
The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art
Brooklyn Museum
200 Eastern Parkway
Brooklyn, New York

For centuries, brutality against females in war and genocide has been considered an almost inevitable by-product of conflict. The Holocaust was no exception. Sexual abuse of Jewish women was not part of German genocidal policy, but nevertheless occurred. A new book, Sexual Violence Against Jewish Women during the Holocaust, documents the sexual violence against Jewish and other women that has been relegated to the fringes of Holocaust history or even denied.

Now rape is an instrument of mass atrocities worldwide, from Bosnia to Rwanda, the Congo, and Sudan. On the occasion of the release of this revelatory book, this panel will speak about the connections and differences, asking: Can this new understanding of sexual violence during the Holocaust decrease and prevent sexual violence during other genocides?

Please join our panelists:

Dr. Elizabeth A. Sackler, Greetings
Gloria Steinem, Moderator
            Feminist activist and co-founder of the Women's Media Center
Sonja M. Hedgepeth, co-editor
            Professor of Foreign Languages and Literature, Middle Tennessee State University
Rochelle G. Saidel, co-editor
            Founder and director, Remember the Women Institute
Nava Semel
            Novelist, Activist, and Child of Holocaust Survivors
Maman Jeanne Kasongo L. Ngondo
            President and Founder of Shalupe Foundation
Jessica Neuwirth
           President of Equality Now, an international human rights organization working to end violence and discrimination against women
