Recollecting our past to shape future generations.

For 25 years, Remember the Women Institute has been dedicated to telling women’s stories from women’s point of view. As we celebrate our 25th  anniversary, we recall our meaningful events and projects and look forward to continuing to give women their place in history.

Sexual Violence against Jewish Women during the Holocaust: Challenges and Reflections

In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Dr. Sonja M. Hedgepeth and Dr. Rochelle G. Saidel, editors, discuss their 2010 groundbreaking book on the subject of sexual violence against Jewish women during the Holocaust. They pay tribute to early researchers on the subject and reflect on the continued challenges for scholars. Including this subject in Holocaust history provides a fuller understanding of what many women endured.
