Book Talk: “The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos”

Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)

“Guns, grenades and espionage” are the words Judy Batalion uses to describe her thrilling dive into “Freuen in di Ghettos,” Yiddish for “Women in the Ghettos,” the blueprint for her new book, The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos. Her book, soon to be the basis for a Steven Spielberg movie, reveals the previously untold stories of brave ghetto women who fought and fooled the Nazis.

HBI is honored to have funded a portion of Batalion’s research.

HBI is a network member of the Jewish Book Council.

We encourage you to purchase the book, read in advance and bring your thoughts and questions to discuss with Judy Batalion and each other.

This event is part of The Sandra Seltzer Silberman HBI Conversations Series.
