“The consensus in Holocaust and genocide studies is that the systems that make mass murder possible would not function without the broad participation of society, and yet nearly all histories of the Holocaust leave out half of those who populated that society, as if women’s history happens somewhere else. It is an illogical approach and puzzling omission. The dramatic stories of these women reveal the darkest side of female activism. They show what can happen when women of varied backgrounds and professions are mobilized for war and acquiesce in genocide.”
Wendy Lower, Hitler's Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields

“Goebbels famously remarked that “men organize life: women are their support and implement their decisions.”
Wendy Lower, Hitler's Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields

“Genocide as an idea and an act is a human”
