Join us for the 31st Annual Robert Salomon Morton Lecture at Northeastern University. Exploring the testimonies of both the women who survived and those who did not survive the Holocaust reveals that even under extreme conditions, gender continues to operate as an important arbiter of experience. Whilst men and women were both sentenced to the same fate, gender nevertheless operated as a crucial signifier for survival.

Zoë Waxman is professor of Holocaust history at the University of Oxford. She is the author of “Writing the Holocaust: memory, testimony, representation” (2006), “Anne Frank” (2015) and “Women in the Holocaust: A Feminist History” (2017), as well as numerous articles relating to the Holocaust and genocide.

This event is part of Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week at Northeastern University.

Presented by the Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Committee, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, the Jewish Studies Program and the Humanities Center. Sponsored by the Robert S. Morton Lectures and Events Endowed Fund, the Gustel Cormann Giessen Memorial Fund – Morton Lecture and the Gustel and Ernst Giessen Morton Lecture Fund.
