This research paper is a cross-parallel thematic study of the strategies of survival during the holocaust. The women survivors of the Holocaust wrote about their experience, memories and reflections, which is available in the form of fiction, poetry, drama and memoir. I have attempted a study of the strategies of survival adopted by those women in the ghetto (people were confined in concentration camp during holocaust). The major concern of this paper is to analyze these strategies of survival during the Holocaust. These narratives give accounts of strategies like use of false documents and identities to escape from concentration camps, time and memory,childbirth and motherhood, mutual assistance, psychological support and sharing of food, mother daughter relationships, sex for survival, reversal of conventional gender roles.
