Resilience and Courage by Nechama Tec

Book Description

In this riveting book Nechama Tec offers insights into the differences between the experiences of Jewish women and men during the Holocaust. Her research draws on a variety of sources: wartime diaries, postwar memoirs, a range of archival materials, and most important, direct interviews with Holocaust survivors. Tec reveals how women and men on the road to annihilation developed distinct coping strategies and how mutual cooperation and compassion operated across gender lines. "Tec is able to paint a more nuanced picture of the realities of Jewish resistance than previous historians...A remarkable and important book."--Tikkun "Tec offers compelling evidence that gender-related analyses add significantly to our understanding of Jewish experiences during the Holocaust."--Jewish Book World "While this is a work of powerful emotionality, it is also a groundbreaking study of how gender is inexplicably bound to history and experience."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
