Jewish Women in Brazil Bibliography


Query From Debora T. Krebs dtkrebs@portoweb.com.br 08 June 1998

Hello..My desire is to learn how Jewish women retained familiar and collective identity when they cam to Brazil during the Second World War. I'm using Katherine Morris' _Odyssey of Exile: Jewish Women Who Fled the Nazis to Brazil_ and some articles about identity (Claude Levi-Strauss, etc). I'm really in need of something that talks directly about Jewish women. It can be about gender studies, oral interviews, etc. I would appreciate any help. Thank you!
