    Not what I had hoped it would be Many of the articles are rather esoteric about pieces of literature that I have never read Many of the articles try to discuss the frequency of sexual violence, but all conclude that there is no way to really know I was hoping to get information on the long term effects of sexual violence on post Holocaust PTSD and recovery It is an ok book and admirable in broaching the topic but I hoped that it would have been in depth on applicable topics.

    This is a new book that will be considered groundbreaking As far as I know, this is the first collection of essays by a group of scholars to address this topic and should serve as a catalyst to future research.

    The idea to study in particular sexualized violence against women in wartime and even particularly during the Holocaust is an honorable idea and I don t want to rate the book as such, like a general rating for the interested reader It s too scholarly well, that s the point of the book for casual reading, and the extremely depressing subject doesn t help But I m glad I have this in my shelf.

    Interesting book, but a little to heavy on the feminist agenda and a little too light on survivor s experiences.
