Hidden Heroines: How Canada’s Jewish Women Helped Win WWII

September 3, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Join author and journalist Ellin Bessner on September 3, 2020 for a “Zoom” talk on The Untold Story of Jewish Women in the Second World War. As a guest of Congregation Dorshei Emet in Montreal, Bessner will take a fascinating look at the Canadian Jewish heroines, both at home and at the front, who helped Canada win WWII, and whose contributions to history have never been properly recognized. “Meet” Bessner’s own great-aunt, Cpl. Daisy Lazare, along with Sgt. Miriam Freedman, S/O Rose Goodman and Pt. Esther (Bubis) Thorley, as well as the legions of Jewish women volunteers who raised funds, packed boxes, made sandwiches and even built the bombs.
