About the Book

Women Against Tyranny: Poems of Resistance during the Holocaust tells the forgotten stories of women, from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds, who resisted throughout Europe during World War II.

Among these women of resistance are Dr. Rita Levi Montalcini, a recipient of the Nobel Prize in Medicine; Dr. Roza Papo, the first female general in Tito's army; Emilie Schindler, Oskar Schindler's wife, who saved hundreds of people but was unacknowledged in Schindler's List; and Magda Trocme, "mother" and leader of Chambon sur-Lignon, the French village which hid thousands of Jews and other refugees. These incredible women are just a few of the heroines populating the pages of Walders' remarkable collection.

With its careful craftsmanship and rich historical detail, Women Against Tyranny will be an inspiration to those interested in any number of topics, including poetry, WWII history, women's studies, and Holocaust literature.
