Heroines, Rescuers, Rabbis, Spies: Unsung Women of the Holocaust

Silberstein Swartz, S.
This compelling, readable resource contains eight stories of brave women, both Jewish and not Jewish, who took great personal risks to save innocent Jewish people during the Holocaust, and have been overlooked by history. Despite being from different social classes, religions, and nationalities, they shared a sense of responsibility to oppose injustice, fought that injustice using whatever means they could, protected the innocent at great personal cost, and risked their own safety for the sake of those who needed help. Suitable to support discussions of Jewish resistance in the Holocaust in Social Studies classrooms, and as part of a literature circle or an independent reading choice in ELA classes.
