Different Horrors, Same Hell brings together a variety of essays demonstrating the breadth of contributions that feminist theory and gender analysis make to the study of the Holocaust. The collection provides new perspectives on central works of Holocaust scholarship and representation, from the books of Hannah Arendt and Ruth Kluger to films such as Claude Lanzmann's Shoah and Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List. Interviews with survivors and their descendants draw new attention to the significance of women's 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 book's first chapter, the focus on women's 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. Other contributors include Karen Baldner, Doris Bergen, Suzanne Brown-Fleming, Britta Frede-Wenger, Mary J. Gallant, Gaby R. Glassman, Dorota Glowacka, Bj'rn Krondorfer, Rochelle L. Millen, and David Patterson.
