One of the most important untold stories of the Second World War, Judy Batalion’s The Light of Days brings to light the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who inspired Poland’s Jewish youth groups to resist the Nazis.

These ‘ghetto girls’, women of the Jewish Resistance, smuggled guns in loaves of bread and coded intelligence messages in their plaited hair; they helped build life-saving systems of underground bunkers and sustained thousands of Jews in safe hiding places; they bribed Gestapo guards with liquor, assassinated Nazis and sabotaged German supply lines.

‘Original and compelling, an untold story of rare and captivating power.’ Philippe Sands

‘These are the women whose voices have not been heard for decades. This book brings them back on to the stage, where they belong.’ Jenni Frazer, Jewish Chronicle
