300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
In The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos by Judy Batalion, after witnessing the brutal murder of their families and neighbors and the destruction of their communities, a group of young Jewish women in Poland – some still teenagers – turn the country’s Jewish youth groups into resistance cells to fight the Nazis. In the summer of 1942, Miriam and Morris Rabinowitz narrowly escaped the Nazi ghetto in their Polish town by fleeing to the forbidding Bialowieza Forest. Rebecca Frankel’s Into the Forest: A Holocaust Story of Survival, Triumph, and Love tells the story of their experience in the woods – through brutal winters, Typhus outbreaks, and merciless Nazi raids – and an unexpected true-love ending in Brooklyn, New York.
