From the Shtetl to the Lecture Hall: Jewish Women and Cultural Exchange
Until the 19th century, women were regularly excluded from graduate education. When this convention changed, it was largely thanks to Jewish women from Russia. Raised to be strong and independent, the daughters of Jewish businesswomen were able to utilize this cultural capital to fight their way into the universities of Switzerland and Germany. They became trailblazers, ensuring regular admission for women who followed their example. Author Luise Hirsch tells the story of Russian and German Jews who became the first female professionals in modern history. She describes their childhoodswhether in Berlin or in a Russian shtetltheir schooling, and their experiences at German universities. A final chapter traces their careers as the first female professionals and details how they were tragically destroyed by the Nazis.
