The Resistance
One of the most extraordinary stories of the Holocaust and World War II has remained hidden until now: the daring resistance efforts of Jewish women in the ghettos of the Nazi occupation. Judy Batalion PhD shares the acts of defiance and rebellion of women who saw and acknowledged the truth of their time, faced an inevitable death, worked together and risked their lives daily in the fight for justice and liberty. She reveals the ingenuity and tenacity of a handful of astonishingly brave young women, underscoring how their movement was larger and more organized than the annals of history have recorded—until now. Batalion’s essays have appeared in the NY Times, the Washington Post, the Forward, Vogue and more.
