Virtual Lecture by author Joanne D. Gilbert


[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.7.7″ text_font_size=”20px” hover_enabled=”0″ sticky_enabled=”0″]Joanne D. Gilbert, grew up in a predominantly Jewish suburb of Detroit, where many Holocaust Survivors lived. Joanne’s earliest influence was her Grandmother, Millie Wineman Ron, who had been able to leave Lithuania before the Nazis came and eliminated the Jewish community. Millie never forgave herself for living when her family had perished. Her stories caused Joanne to wonder about the ways her relatives might have fought the Nazis—and whether their non-Jewish neighbors had tried to help them. In 2012, Joanne was finally able to search for answers to these questions. Her journey took her throughout the US, Canada, and Europe to do research and interviews. The result is Women of Valor.

Joanne is dedicated to preserving and celebrating the legacy of the young women who actively–and successfully defied the Nazis—and who not only survived, but went on to live long, loving, and productive lives dedicated to their families and Holocaust Remembrance.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
