Editorial Reviews

Review

“Well-researched and riveting.” -- Wall Street Journal

“Amazing…both a profoundly moving and breathtaking read.”  -- Haaretz

“Pulses with pride and rage.” -- New York Times Book Review

"Thrilling, devastating... tells of an underground network of young Jewish women in Poland who resisted the Nazis by engaging in smuggling, sabotage, and even armed defense. Their courageous deeds, largely forgotten until now, are astounding." -- Christian Science Monitor

“Hard to put down…The Light of Days is not a story but a multi-layered epic, one that rewrites the Holocaust. Drama abounds and the characters are deeply engaging. Required reading.” -- The Jerusalem Post 

"Written with passion…Batalion’s research is prodigious, and her dedication to her story obvious and moving." -- Boston Globe

“Bold, brave and revelatory, meticulously researched and engagingly written, Batalion transports readers into the harrowing World War II era, where a generation of young, Jewish women banded together to fight an almost unimaginable evil.”
-- Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, New York Times bestselling author of Dr. Mutter’s Marvels

"Gripping, haunting and superbly told...Judy Batalion brings to light half-forgotten tales of astounding courage."  -- The Economist

“Be not afraid. Judy Batalion brings to life the story of young women who had mindboggling valor. Super heroes. They fought the Nazis. With nerves of steel. You don’t have to fight the Nazis (we hope). But you do have to be courageous and honorable. (Well, most of the time).  And you will be. There are inspirational books that change your life. And this is one of them.” -- Maira Kalman, author of And the Pursuit of Happiness

"This is a powerful and necessary book. I’m so grateful to Judy Batalion for bringing us these women in all their fierce intelligence and courage. It’s astonishing that their stories haven’t been widely heard until now—but Batalion’s rare combination of skills has brought them to vibrant life. This is history we’ve needed to hear." -- Rachel Kadish, author of The Weight of Ink

"Judy Batalion has told the largely forgotten stories of the girl couriers, smugglers and fighters who formed the nerve center of Jewish resistance in occupied Poland. A breathtaking, dazzling work of historical resurrection" -- Molly Crabapple, author of Drawing Blood and Brothers of the Gun (with Marwan Hisham)

“Resounding history of Jewish women who fought the German invaders in World War II. In a vigorous narrative that draws on interviews, diaries, and other sources, Batalion delivers an objective view of past events that are too quickly being forgotten—and a story much in need of telling.”
-- Kirkus (Starred Review) 

“A remarkable portrait of young Jewish women who fought in the Polish resistance during WWII. . . pays vivid tribute to `the breadth and scope of female courage.'" -- Publishers Weekly

About the Author

She has written for the New York Times, Vogue, the Washington Post and many other publications. Prior to her writing career, she was an academic and is fluent in both Yiddish and Hebrew.
