This paper studies the experiences of university Jewish women in interwar Belgium by reconstructing their image; multifaceted and changing across time and space, it varied according to the observers’ perspective and their relationships with the women under analysis. Looking at their life trajectories through the eyes of their parents, male student fellows, friends and lovers, it allows us to sketch these forgotten avant-garde women and to illustrate how they struggled for their emancipation through higher education. Emancipated and secularized, they entered a man’s world and frequently excelled.
