About the Author

Phyllis Lassner is professor emerita in the Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies at Northwestern University. Her most recent book is Espionage and Exile: Fascism and Anti-Fascism in British Spy Fiction and Film. Danny M. Cohen is associate professor of instruction at Northwestern University's School of Education and Social Policy and the Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies.


Lassner and Cohen deserve praise and gratitude for pursuing and bringing to fruition the republication of I Was a Doctor in Auschwitz. One of the first published by an Auschwitz survivor, Perl's memoir not only recounts the horrors of existence in Auschwitz, which included grave moral challenges and efforts to resist, but also engages many of the questions that have shaped the field of Holocaust Studies. Lassner and Cohen serve the reader well with their outstanding introduction that contextualizes Perl's memoir in the history and the historiography of the Holocaust, particularly as related to understandings of women's experiences. They also chose wisely to end the new edition with a poignant essay by Eva Hoffman. Students and scholars alike will benefit from this new edition for years to come. -- Sarah M. Cushman, director of Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University
