Community read of the book The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos by Judy Batalion

November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a community read of The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos by Judy Batalion

Hosted by the Jewish Community Center of the North Shore, in partnership with Abbot Public Library, Swampscott Public Library, and the Center for Holocaust Studies at Salem State University.

One of the most important untold stories of World War II, optioned by Steven Spielberg for a major motion picture, is a spectacular, searing history that brings to light the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who became resistance fighters—a group of unknown heroes whose exploits have never been chronicled in full, until now. Witnesses to the brutal murder of their families and neighbors and the violent destruction of their communities, a cadre of Jewish women in Poland—some still in their teens—helped transform the Jewish youth groups into resistance cells to fight the Nazis. Powerful and inspiring The Light of Days is an unforgettable true tale of war, the fight for freedom, exceptional bravery, female friendship, and survival in the face of staggering odds.
