Part of the project “(In)separable. Difficult Subjects in Polish-Jewish Relations”, 2021 edition.
Many scholars dealing with Jewish themes from the perspective of gender studies point out that a Jewish woman faces dual discrimination: due to her religious and ethnic identity, and because of her gender. How does gender influence the image of Jews? Where did the myth of a “beautiful Jewess”, who is exotic, mysterious, sometimes even dangerous, come from, and how does it function today? What was the meaning of gender during the Shoah? Does the intensification of antisemitic prejudices have any connection to gender?
