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.
