Jewish Book Series: The Light of Days

November 14, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Mayerson JCC for this year’s Jewish Book Series! Hear writers’ personal stories and their literary perspectives. Authors will discuss their inspirations, processes, and books.

In The Light of Days, Judy Batalion captures the mostly forgotten stories of extraordinary, brave young Jewish women who witnessed the destruction of their communities and murder of their families in Nazi Germany. With daring and deception, the “ghetto girls” smuggled weapons in household goods, bribed and killed Nazi soldiers, and bombed German train lines, all while taking care of their community. Optioned by Steven Spielberg, this book brings to light this inspiring story of survival against all odds.

Tickets: $10 Member | $13 Public
