Duration   1h

Dr. David Patterson, Hillel A. Feinberg Distinguished Chair of Holocaust Studies and former commissioner of the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission, will present the second talk of the Ackerman Center's annual Spring Lecture Series.

This lecture explores some highlights of Zivia Lubetkin’s (1914 – 1978) memoir of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, Days of Destruction and Revolt. Lubetkin was a founder of the Warsaw Ghetto’s Jewish Fighting Organization. During her underground activities, the name "Cywia" or Zivia became the code word for Poland in letters sent by resistance groups both within and outside of the Warsaw Ghetto. She was one of the leaders of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and one of only 34 fighters to survive the war. In 1946 she made her way to Mandate Palestine, where she married the leader of the Uprising, Yitzhak Zuckerman.

This event will be followed by a reception in the Ackerman Center (JO 4.800).
