Testimonies from the survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation form the basis of this study of memory and trauma in relation to women's experiences and sexual behavior during Hitler's reign of terror. The three essays in this manuscript explore survivor testimony for memories of sexual politics and the functioning of the Nazi state, sexual abuse that often cut across gender lines, and sexual behavior in the different contexts of persecution_ghettos, camps, and hiding.
