The Warsaw Ghetto’s female fighters, especially those of communist leanings, have been mostly forgotten. Dorka Goldman’s life offers a window into their collective story, giving a unique glimpse into the lives of young Jewish women involved in the radical leftist movement before World War II. Joanna Ostrowska researches forgotten victims of the Holocaust, and the queer history of World War II. She is the author of Unmentioned: Sexual Forced Labor during World War II.
