Episode 67: Jewish Resistance Fighters
Guest: Judy Batalion, author, The Light of Days
Sunday, July 18, 2021
This week on History Happy Hour: The brave Jewish women at the heart of Polish resistance to the Nazis. Smuggling guns in loaves of bread, coding intelligence messages in their braids, and assassinating Nazis, the courageous “ghetto girls” helped undermine Nazi activity and inspire widespread resistance.
Why is their story so little known? Host-historians Chris Anderson and Rick Beyer welcome Judy Batalion, author of The Light of Days: Women Fighters of the Jewish Resistance.
Learn more about these little-recognized but truly remarkable heroines this Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, the spot where history is always on tap.
