The predominant topic of post-Holocaust Jewish religious philosophy has been that of the transitory obscurity of God, translated either as a celestial puzzle or, all the more generally, as God’s deferral to human opportunity. Be that as it may, conventional Judaic commitments of female nearness, together with the customary picture of the Shekhinah as a figure of God’s ‘femaleness’ going with Israel into outcast, appear to negate such philosophies of nonappearance. The Female Face of God in Auschwitz, the main full-length women’s activist religious philosophy of the Holocaust, contends that the male centric predisposition of post-Holocaust philosophy turns out to be completely clear just when ladies’ encounters and needs are brought into verifiable light. Expanding upon the distributed declarations of four ladies detained at Auschwitz-Birkenau – Olga Lengyel, Lucie Adelsberger, Bertha Ferderber-Salz and Sara Nomberg-Przytyk – it thinks about ladies’ particular encounters of the sacred in connection to God’s apparent nearness and nonattendance in the camps.

God’s face, says Melissa Raphael, was not covered up in Auschwitz, however personally uncovered in the female face turned towards alternate as a refractive picture of God, particularly in the ethical dissent made noticeable through material and profound consideration for the ambushed other.
