The Power of Women: Female Resistance During the Holocaust

Event details
Calendar   Workshops
Location Zoom
Date Mon, Mar 6, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Duration   1h

During the Holocaust, more than 30,000 Jews fought back in armed resistance against the Nazis and their collaborators. Approximately 10% of them were women. Learn about the thousands of remarkable women, who defied gender roles, to fight back as Jewish partisans. Faced with the constant threat of death, these women, many of them teens, overcame nearly impossible odds and demonstrated extraordinary strength and  courage to disrupt the Nazi war machine by blowing up bridges, sabotaging railroad lines, and more, to save Jewish lives and hasten the end of the war.

Workshop presenter Sheri Rosenblum, Director of Development and Outreach, specializes in Holocaust education and professional development.
