Teach your students about women who resisted
the Nazis and their collaborators during
Women’s History Month

With two weeks remaining in Women’s History Month, there is still time to bring the empowering history of Jewish women who fought back against the Nazis and their collaborations to your students.

JPEF offers a wealth of ready-to-use classroom lesson plans and films for you to use – all for free. Bring the little-known history of these women who defied gender roles, saved lives, and helped hasten the war’s end to your students. These incredible role models who stood up and fought back against genocide and hate show young people that they, too, can make a difference.

Educational materials on this subject include:

Lesson Plans:
Jewish Women in the Partisans 
Gertrude Boyarski: From Frail Girl to Partisan Fighter
Sonia Orbuch: A Young Woman in the Soviet Partisans

Everyday the Impossible: Jewish Women in the Partisans
A Partisan Returns: The Legacy of Two Sisters

Partisan biographies and Interviews:
13 women, including Sara Fortis (pictured above left) and Brenda Senders (center), on the JPEF website, 40 plus women on our second site, Jewish Partisan Community

Thank you for bringing Jewish partisan women’s incredible histories and legacies to your students.
