Despite the explosive growth of Holocaust studies, scholars of Nazi Germany and the Shoah long neglected gender as an analytical category. It wasn't until 1984 when the essay collection When Biology Became Destiny: Women in Weimar and Nazi Germany raised awareness of women's experiences under fascism. It explored women's double jeopardy as females and as Jews. In this lecture, Marion Kaplan, one of the editors the publication, takes the audience on a historical tour of her research, from the first workshops raising questions to the first publications providing answers. Since then, the gender perspective has provided significant insight into our understanding of Jewish life in Nazi Germany and during the Holocaust. Kaplan concludes her talk with a forward look at new areas of research that highlight women's and gender studies. Recorded on 01/17/2019. (#34018)
