Daring to Resist: Three Women Face the Holocaust- April 29
6:30 pm Kansas City Public Library Plaza Branch
Why would a young person choose resistance during Hitler’s reign of terror while her world was collapsing around her? In this gripping documentary, three Jewish women answer this question by recalling their lives as teenagers in occupied Holland, Hungary and Poland. Defying her family’s wishes, each woman found an unexpected way of fighting back–as a ballet dancer shuttling Jews to safe houses and distributing resistance newspapers; as a leader in an underground Zionist group smuggling Jews across the border, and as a photographer and partisan (Faye Schulman) waging guerrilla war against the Germans.
(Running time: 59 minutes, English, 1999)
