Description:

Mary Kaplan, in her book Between Dignity and Despair: Jewish Life in Nazi Germany", explores the era and the Holocaust from a different perspective, from the role of Jewish women as she tries to answer questions that have never really been answered like: Why didn't they leave as they witnessed a consuming hate manifest itself in Nazism? This essay, relying upon the research and writing of Kaplan and others, attempts to understand, from a woman's perspective, how Jews and Germans disentangled themselves emotionally, socially, as Germans, culturally in a way that led to the destruction of five million men, women, and children in a near successful attempt to carry out Adolf Hitler's final solution.

Outline:
Before and After the Eradication of Jewry from German Life
The Jewish Woman in Nazi Germany
