Reviews

"Hitler's Furies will be experienced and remembered as a turning point in both women's studies and Holocaust studies" * Timothy Snyder, author of Bloodlands *
"As pioneering as it is readable" * Literary Review *
"She writes engagingly, wears her considerable erudition lightly...never allowing her analysis to outweigh the fundamental humanity of the stories" * New Statesman *
"As gripping and eye-opening as it is chilling" -- Andrea Walker * People *
"Hitler's Furies turns on its head the idea that women are innately more nurturing, kind and moral than men... While the accepted wisdom on female participation in the Holocaust singles out the sadistic behaviour of a few women guards in the concentration camps, such behaviour is usually contrasted with the myth of German female ignorance of the horrors. A veil has largely been drawn over the actions of the rest. Not any more" -- Eleanor Mills * Sunday Times (News Review) *
