We can’t wait to check out Agnes Grunwald-Spier’s new book called “Women’s Experiences in the Holocaust,” which shows the incredible heroism of women during this dark time in history.
“It really could have been twice as long,” said Grunwald-Spier, herself a Holocaust survivor. “There were so many amazing women.”
The book does not directly address the Shoah’s best-known female narrative — diarist Anne Frank, whose teenage life ended at Bergen-Belsen in 1944. But Grunwald-Spier seeks to add other voices — and to challenge what constitutes a Holocaust hero…
Others were equally heroic, she said: Women who looked after children. Rachel Auerbach, who ran a soup kitchen in the Warsaw Ghetto for three years “might not perhaps be recognized as a hero to a man,” Grunwald-Spier said.
