The Holocaust’s Untold Chapter

The revelations about sexual violence against women during the Holocaust presented by scholars Sonja Hedgepeth and Rochelle Saidel are most important (“Struggling To Be Heard,” March 25).

It is understandable that stories like this are often never broached. How can a person overcome such personal shame to disclose such things to one’s own children?

For all the writings, images and restitutions, the horrors we know about the Holocaust never truly reflected the completeness of the Nazi atrocity. There is yet more to be told. Hedgepeth and Saidel have done an important service.
