History paper by Bock, Julia (all papers)
Hungarian Jewish Women Doctors during the Holocaust
The fate of women was different from men during the holocaust. They were ordered for Labor services only by the very end of the ordeal of the holocaust,after October 21, 1944 following the Ferenc Szálasi political take over. As the Head of State, he ordered women in Budapest, between 16 and 40 years of age to present themselves at the KISOK (Közép Iskolás Sportolók Országos Köre) Stadium with three days food supplies. By that time major deportation from the country-side that started at the beginning of April 44 that included women, was accomplished. The paper describes the women entering the profession, their choice of fields and their special fate during the Shoa.
