The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler's Ghettos

Witnesses to the brutal murder of their families and neighbors and the violent destruction of their communities, a cadre of Jewish women in Poland ― some still in their teens ― helped transform the Jewish youth groups into resistance cells to fight the Nazis. These “ghetto girls” paid off Gestapo guards, hid revolvers in loaves of bread and jars of marmalade, and helped build systems of underground bunkers. Yet the exploits of these courageous resistance fighters have remained virtually unknown.

The Light of Days tells the true story of these incredible women. Author Judy Batalion follows Renia Kukielka, a weapons smuggler and messenger, and the women who joined her. She captures the savage destruction of the ghettos, the horror of arrest and internment in Gestapo prisons and concentration camps, and for a lucky few ― like Renia, who orchestrated her own audacious escape ― into the late 20th century and beyond. This spectacular, searing history, which has also been adapted into a Young Readers Edition, brings to light the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who became resistance fighters ― a group of unknown heroes whose exploits have never been chronicled in full, until now.
