Jennifer Marlow, a doctoral candidate in History at Michigan State University, is currently finishing her dissertation, “Polish Catholic Maids and Nannies: Female Aid and the Domestic Realm in Nazi-Occupied Poland.” This project examines the role of Polish Catholic household servants working in interwar Jewish homes and the ways that the relationships that developed in the domestic realm sometimes influenced decisions to seek or provide aid during the Holocaust. Her research interests are Holocaust studies, Polish-Jewish relations, gender roles, childhood, and family relations. She has written the article, “Female Bonds and the Domestic Realm in Holocaust Rescue: The Role of Polish Nannies,” for Yad Vashem’s forthcoming anthology, Hiding, Sheltering and Borrowing Identities as Avenues of Rescue During the Holocaust as well as book reviews for Holocaust Studies: A Journal of Culture and History and The Polish Review. Ms. Marlow is a Saul Kagan Claims Conference Academic Fellow and has been a USHMM Robert Savitt Visiting Fellow.
