Abstract: »A press announcement by the University of Greifswald announcing a study on sexualized violence in the final stages of World War II engendered an enormous response from the women involved, others interested in the topic, and the media. This response represents a genuine kaleidoscope of reports and opinions on a trauma hitherto largely neglected in public discourse. The article quotes a number of typical responses on the subject and attempts to elucidate them in psychotraumatological terms. All responses from the women affected have been completely anonymized and the biographical details changed to make them unidentifiable.« (Source: Trauma & Gewalt)
