JEWISH WOMEN PERFORMED TRULY HEROIC DEEDS DURING THE HOLOCAUST. They
faced unthinkable peril and upheaval -- traditions upended, spouses sent to the death
camps, they themselves torn from their roles as caregivers and pushed into the workforce,
there to be humiliated and abused. In the face of danger and atrocity, they bravely joined
the resistance, smuggled food into the ghettos and made wrenching sacrifices to keep
their children alive. Their courage and compassion continue to inspire us to this day”.
