concentration camp. I can
only paraphrase his words,
but they were to this effect:
That he (Eisenhower) went
through every nook and
cranny of that infamous
camp to make sure to commit
it to memory, so that in the
future, if ever someone tried
to claim that these things
never happened, his
(Eisenhower’s) words would
stand as a proof of the
veracity of the events. What

Holocaust Women: A
Study in Survival, spon
sored by the Institute for
Research in History with a
grant from the New York
Council for the Humanities,
was attended by Dr. Susan
Cernyak-Spatz. A crowd of
400 packed Stern College for
Women of Yeshiva Universi

a two-day conference in late
Organizers of the con
ference were anxious that it
be held before the passage of
time and the generation of
survivors makes the ex
trapolation of women’s ex
periences even more dif-
hcult. Numerous questions
were posed:
How were women treated
differently from men and
how did they respond? What
kind of work did they do in
concentration and labor
camps, in ghettos, resistance
movements and rescue mis
sions? What risks did they
take? To what medical ex
periments were they sub
jected? What kinds of rela
tionships did they form with
one another? Did they ever
laugh? What did they talk
To that last question,
Susan Cernyak-Spatz, now
associate professor of
foreign languages at the Un-
versity of North Carolina at
Charlotte responded, “Food!
I never cooked as well as I
did with my mouth in
Relationships with other
women were critical. “Bon
ding with other women was
of supreme importance,”
said Susan Cernyak-Spatz,
who was in three concentra
tion camps, Theresienstadt,
Auschwitz and
Ravensbruck. “Without a
support group you couldn’t
survive. Relationships were
totally dependent on one’s
work situation, for there was
no visiting after hours.’’ Her
co-workers saved her life,
she said, by dragging her out
of the barrack for roll call
when she was too sick to
walk on her own.
