Abstract

In this book chapter by Birgit Beck on sexual violence and war, she explores the intersection of gender and race in the Nazi campaign of extermination against the Soviet Union during the Second World War, starting in 1941. German Wehrmacht soldiers and SS men of the so-called Nazi Protection Squadron (Schutzstaffel, SS)  practiced sexual violence, including rape,  in many forms against Soviet girls and women, because they perceived them, according to the Nazi propaganda, as "Slavic Sub-humans." Different then in Western Europe sexual violence, was most of the time not persecuted by the German military jurisdiction. The chapter was published in the volume Geschlecht hat Methode: Ansätze und Perspektiven in der Frauen- und Geschlechtergeschichte: Beiträge der 9. Schweizerischen Hitorikerinnentagung 1998 (Gender has a Method: Approaches and Perspectives of Women's and Gender History -- Contributions to the 9th Swiss Congress of Women's Historians 1998).
