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

Women's roles in World War II are often overlooked — so in this book, you can discover nine ordinary women who took extraordinary measures to save lives during the Holocaust, resisting terror and torture while undercover or in hiding, in concentration camps, in forests, and in exile. The women profiled include Rabbi Regina Jones, the first female rabbi — ordained just as Nazi persecution started accelerating, and killed in the Auschwitz concentration camp; Rachel Eiga Auerbach, who used her journalist skills to record the lives of Polish Jews under Nazi occupation; and sisters Regina Zlotnik Silberstein and Ruth Zlotnik Altman — the author's mother and aunt — who were active in the Warsaw resistance.

With compassion and admiration, author Sarah Silberstein Swartz paints portraits of women who stood up for themselves and others in dangerous times. Overlooked by history, they leapt from fear to action with bravery that deserves recognition.

Description

"Each chapter begins with an attractive, stylized portrait that effectively evokes the time period; the woman’s name and dates of birth and death; and a capsule description. These personal stories are illuminating and powerful, offering ways for readers to connect with and understand the past. Swartz writes from a feminist perspective, questioning why these heroic figures went unsung and frequently even unmentioned while male heroes received praise and recognition." — Kirkus Reviews
