The purpose of the paper: to focus on a new, hidden side of holocaust studies, which has not been researched or discussed before. In the introduction I presented the status of the research in the world. The lack of research material brought me to research and document stories of the last witnesses who remained alive. The second chapter includes a broad survey in sociological and psychological aspects of women status, male-female cultural and sociological differences in general, and in the discussed time period in Europe especially. The third chapter is a qualitative research section, based on interviews, documentary material, and fine literature. Its target is to strengthen the oral testimonies through indirect and/or fictional testimonies. I believe that spreading the matter, introducing it directly, "outing" it, holds a certain novelty. I, nevertheless, have not found another research dealing with this issue before. In the summary I have mentioned that the bringing up of the subject was done from to main reasons: (1) In order to show that the holocaust was done by people to people. It happened on our planet, and there is nothing like gender roles to emphasize that point. (2) My will to show another side of the suffering which happened on those dark times, a side that hurt half of the victims and still it has not been mentioned as much as it should. This side has hurt a wicker side of mankind. Unfortunately, the male dominating point of view directs history and has ignored and not been sensitive enough to this aspect.
