Judy Batalion, The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos

Batalion’s deep exploration of the brave women of the Jewish resistance in the Nazi ghettos.

“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. Read more in the New York Times.

HBI is a network member of the Jewish Book Council.
