.... an open invitation to the community to join us for a fascinating learning opportunity:


Featuring guest speaker: Bruce Bramlett, a lecturer with the Jewish Partisan Education Foundation in San Francisco.


Holocaust history is incomplete without exploring the extraordinary role of the Jewish Partisans and the various forms of Jewish resistance. There were approximately 30,000 armed Jewish partisans who fought back during the Holocaust, as portrayed in the movie "Defiance." They played an important role in saving Jewish lives and sabotaging the Nazi war machine during the Holocaust. There were also millions of Jews that fought back using unarmed resistance.


Join us to learn more about this intriguing piece of Holocaust history and how the Partisans and Jewish resistance made a difference!
