This chapter reads a selection of Birgit Jürgenssen’s works of the early 1970s, including her Hausfrau drawings and her Schuhwerk pieces, as responses to key moments in Austria’s history of Nazi complicity and specifically the roles played by women in this history. It closes with an analysis of her 1973 drawing Mit der Bahn in eine bessere Zukunft, which it relates to specific wartime events in Austria.
