Hybrid Event: Sex, Violence and Speech in the Holocaust: The Case of Yiddish, Hannah Pollin-Galay with Zoe Waxman

The Wiener Holocaust Library The Wiener Holocaust Library, London, United Kingdom

This lecture will explore new Holocaust-era Yiddish words for sex and sexual violence, uncovering stories of both desire and abuse. These terms illuminate the importance of new historical realities such as sex barter and loss of libido, as well as long-standing ideas about the Jewish female body.
