The collection provides new perspectives on central works of Holocaust scholarship and representation, from the books of Hannah Arendt and Ruth Kl ger to films such as Claude Lanzmanns Shoah and Steven Spielbergs Schindlers List. Interviews with survivors and their descendants draw new attention to the significance of womens roles and family structures during and in the aftermath of the Holocaust, and interviews and archival research reveal the undercurrents of sexual violence within the Final Solution. As Doris Bergen shows in the books first chapter, the focus on womens and gender issues in this collection complicates familiar and outworn categories, and humanizes the past in powerful ways.

Myrna Goldenberg is professor emerita, Montgomery College, Maryland, and founding director of the Paul Peck Humanities Institute at Montgomery. Amy Shapiro is professor of philosophy and humanities at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Millen, and David Patterson.The books contributions come from a formidable, impressive, and multigenerational group of Holocaust scholars. With its interdisciplinarity and international perspectives, Different Horrors, Same Hell will make important contributions to Holocaust studies and, in particular, to scholarship about women and gender in that context. -John K. Roth, Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna CollegeThe voices vary widely, from the mystical to the strident, from the autobiographical to the scholarly.

Such diversity provides texture to the anthology and makes the reading experience layered and multifaceted. These essays break new ground in format and/or subject matter, bringing gendered analysis to new levels of nuance and insight. -Dr. Elizabeth Baer, author of The Golem Redux: From Prague to Post- Holocaust Fiction
