Research interests

Kate's PhD project examines a group of female doctors and nurses who worked at Ravensbrück concentration camp during the Third Reich. It considers how societal constructs of gender impacted the experiences of these women while they worked at the camp itself, and their post-war treatment by authorities in East and West Germany and in Britain.
