German Women and World War II

Killing Care analyzes the roles of German women as victims of, complicit participants in, and perpetrators of violence in World War II: as auxiliary forces in the German army, as nurses, as refugees, as rape victims, and as Holocaust survivors. Although there is a growing body of work on women's involvement in war, the relation between women and war remains underanalyzed and undertheorized. Drawing on memoirs as well as prose fiction by German-language authors, Killing Care tries to create a framework that helps us understand women's involvement in war.
