    Abstract: Incorporating space methodology and combining it with gender studies, this article looks at how German-Jewish men, in a space-specific environment, prewar Nazi concentration camps, came to adjust their understandings and practices of masculinity. The paper argues that performing pre-learned forms of military masculinity inside the camps vis-à-vis Nazi personnel, while simultaneously maintaining conventional gender norms in their letter exchanges to their families and spouses in the outside world, were of fundamental importance. Jewish men’s ability to adjust their practice of masculinity represented a defiant attempt of survival and control over their lives under an increasingly oppressive regime.

    Abstract: This article examines the experiences of German Jewish men who defied their deportations and instead tried to subsist in the underground in Nazi Germany during the years of the Holocaust. The author takes a gendered perspective analyzing some of the gender-specific challenges that German Jewish men faced, as well as coping strategies these men developed to overcome them. Argues that German Jewish men, like women, used distinctly gendered survival strategies. These included the disguising of their Jewish identities through the forging of military papers and adapting military-male behaviors; the masquerading of their physical male constitution qua assuming a female appearance; and the endorsing of their male status in the men-deprived social landscape of wartime Germany, using German women as protective shields.

    Abstract: "When the Nazis came to power, they used various strategies to expel German Jews from social, cultural, and economic life. Fighter, Worker, and Family Man focuses on the gendered experiences and discrimination that German-Jewish men faced between 1933 and 1941. Sebastian Huebel argues that Jewish men's gender identities, intersecting with categories of ethnicity, race, class, and age, underwent a profound process of marginalization that destabilized their accustomed ways of performing masculinity. At the same time, in their attempts to sustain their conceptions of masculinity these men maintained agency and developed coping strategies that prevented their full-scale emasculation. Huebel draws on a rich archive of diaries, letters, and autobiographies to interpret the experiences of these men, focusing on their roles as soldiers and protectors, professionals and breadwinners, and parents and husbands. Fighter, Worker, and Family Man sheds light on how the Nazis sought to emasculate Jewish men through propaganda, the law, and violence, and how in turn German-Jewish men were able to defy emasculation and adapt--at least temporarily--to their marginalized status as men."--
