Heroines of the Holocaust
|Date||Tue, Mar 16, 6:00pm - 7:00pm|
During the Holocaust, more than 3,000 women fought back against the Nazis in ghettos, forced labor camps, concentration camps, and partisan units. Join Dr. Lori Weintrob, Director of the Wagner College Holocaust Center, for a program exploring the heroic lives and legacies of these female resistance fighters.
Weintrob will be in conversation with Rokhl Kafrissen, Yiddish culture writer and Tablet Magazine contributor, and Rachel Rachama Roth, a survivor of Auschwitz who will provide her eyewitness testimony to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
