Women of Valor: Polish Resisters to the Third Reich provides a unique and inspiring perspective on the extraordinary Jewish and non- Jewish women who risked everything to defy the Nazis. In this highly readable and educational collection of true stories, educator, public-speaker and author Joanne D. Gilbert celebrates the heroines of World War II who not only fought the horrors of the Holocaust, but survived well into their 80s and 90s-living lives of commitment to the human spirit and human rights.

'... I saw that a Nazi was already chasing me... I felt and heard bullets flying by-I just kept on running.' - 18-year-old Partisan Manya Feldman

'I also had a grenade with which to blow myself up so if captured, I wouldn't break under torture.' - 19-year-old Partisan Faye Schulman

'Face-to-face with Adolf Eichmann... instead of being struck by terror, I was struck by how normal he looked.' - 17-year-old Lola Lieber

'I was determined to be as strong and productive as a boy... I helped the posted guards... I camouflaged trails, and scouted out the surrounding areas for safety.' - 7-year-old Miriam Brysk
