Women During the Holocaust: How Did They Cope?

A conversation and Q&A with Dr. Myrna Goldenberg and Dr. Sara Horowitz

Date: Thursday, July 11, 2024
Time: 11:00am - 12:15pm ET
Location: On Zoom

Myrna Goldenberg, Ph.D., has published seminal articles on women and the Holocaust and co-edited, with Amy Shapiro, Different Horrors, Same Hell: Gender and the Holocaust; with Elizabeth Baer, Experience and Expression: Women, the Nazis, and the Holocaust; and, with Rochelle L. Millen, Testimony, Tensions, and Tikkun: Teaching the Holocaust in Colleges and Universities as well as numerous articles on American Jewish women’s literature and history. Her prize-wining book, Before All Memory is Lost, is composed of short memoirs of east European women who survived the Holocaust and emigrated to Canada.

Still actively researching women’s experiences during the Holocaust, she has retired from academic life and makes her home in Bethesda, MD, and New York City, in close proximity to the two major American museums on the Holocaust.

Her next writing project will be a biography of the founder of Barnard College, Annie Nathan Meyer.

Her abiding focus is her family—Neal, her husband; her children, Liz, David, and Eve, and her grand girls, Olivia and Louise.
