Women against Tyranny
Poems of Resistance during the Holocaust
Women Against Tyranny: Poems of Resistance during the Holocaust tells the forgotten stories of women, from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds, who resisted throughout Europe during World War II.
Among these women of resistance are Dr. Rita Levi Montalcini, a recipient of the Nobel Prize in Medicine; Dr. Roza Papo, the first female general in Tito’s army; Emilie Schindler, Oskar Schindler’s wife, who saved hundreds of people but was unacknowledged in Schindler’s List; and Magda Trocme, “mother” and leader of Chambon sur-Lignon, the French village which hid thousands of Jews and other refugees. These incredible women are just a few of the heroines populating the pages of Walders’ remarkable collection.
