Women in Resistance: Fierce Females – the Couriers


22 Apr 2021, 5:00pm





Book a ticket

Women were often at the very heart of resistance, whether spiritual, cultural or armed.

Our guest speaker, Sheryl Silver Ochayon, is Program Manager for Echoes & Reflections at Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem. In this online talk, she will focus on the role of women, especially the part they played in armed resistance. This story has largely remained in the shadows or, perhaps, been overshadowed by the stories of armed resistance in the ghettos of Europe. Yet it is a story of incredible bravery exhibited by a group of Jewish girls and women.

Join us to learn their stories.

This event is part of our series of events in the theme of Archives, Collections and Material Memory.
