Abstract: »In "Rape and Sexual Abuse in Hiding," Zoë Waxman focuses on the subject of rape in hiding and points to the difficulties women have had in describing this ordeal. Her essay demonstrates that sometimes so-called righteous people who hid Jews from Nazis took advantage of the situation and sexually assaulted those they were supposed to be protecting.« [Source: Sonja M.
