Judy Batalion, “The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos”

Interview moderated by Lory Cooper, Manager-Volunteers and Tours for the St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum

Presented in partnership with the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival

One of the most important stories of World War II, Judy Batalion, the granddaughter of Polish Holocaust survivors, shares the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who became resistance fighters. Witnesses to the brutal murder of their families and neighbors and the violent destruction of their communities, these unknown women—some still in their teens—helped transform the Jewish youth groups into resistance cells to fight the Nazis. With courage, guile, and nerves of steel, these “ghetto girls” served as couriers, armed fighters, intelligence agents, and saboteurs. “The Light of Days” is an unforgettable true tale of war, the fight for freedom, female friendship, and survival in the face of staggering odds. 

Books available from The Novel Neighbor. Curbside pickup and shipping available.

Even in history’s darkest hours, art and beauty have prospered. Featuring works of Erwin Schulhoff, Gideon Klein, and Andre Previn, this program is dedicated to the music and memory of artists who perished in the Holocaust. Learn their stories, witness their music, and come together to remember these lost — but not forgotten — voices.

Presented thanks to a sponsorship from the A.M. and Anna Rose Seltzer Music & Cultural Arts Endowment Fund of Congregation Kneseth Israel.

This program will also be broadcast to communities in both St. Louis, Missouri, and Kalamazoo, Michigan, thanks to support from the St. Louis Holocaust Museum and Michigan Festival of Sacred Music
