Leading international scholars of the Holocaust and Genocide will highlight women rescuers and resisters in daily life, in ghettos, forests, labor and death camps, including Jewish and non-Jewish women professionals and partisans. Often overlooked, women were critical to the Jewish underground and other resistance networks of armed fighters and strategists, as couriers of intelligence and false papers and in operating educational, cultural and humanitarian initiatives. This symposium hopes to create a new narrative around agency in the Shoah and other genocides and to promote a rethinking of leadership in Holocaust resistance and rescue, which may inspire transformative activism today.
