Birth Sex and Abuse: Women’s Voices Under Nazi Rule has been awarded the 2015 Canadian Jewish Literary Award for Holocaust Literature.
The award citation reads: “Though the subject is horrifying, this book offers a remarkable analysis of the Nazi war against women in all its practical and ideological aspects. The focus on the whispered issue of the abuse of childbearing and sexuality in ghettos and concentration camps underscores the malevolence of the Nazis. It is an important tool for scholars studying the diabolical logic of the policies of the Third Reich.” In the introduction to her award presentation, the book was likened to that of the distinguished author Martin Gilbert for both its historical accuracy and excellence as well as for its ease of reading and accessibility for readers.
The book is available from Amazon in both print and e-book formats.
