Wendy Lower is the author of Hitler’s Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields (2013). Hitler’s Furies challenges our deepest beliefs using evidence hidden for 70 years: women can be just as brutal as men. Drawing upon 20 years of archival research and fieldwork on the Holocaust, Lower’s stunning account of the role of German women on the Eastern Front—not only as plunderers and direct witnesses but as actual killers—powerfully revises history.

Lower is the John K. Roth Professor of History at Claremont McKenna College and a research associate at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich. A historical consultant for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, she has published numerous articles and books on the Holocaust, including Nazi Empire-Building and the Holocaust in Ukraine (2007).
