Kubow Remembers Victims

Western History's PhD Candidate, Magdalena Kubow reminds us that Monday marks the 70th anniversary of the Day of Protest against the victimization of Polish women by the Nazis in an article in the London Free Press on July 30, 2012. This article will also be featured in the Ottawa Citizen (on Monday) the Canadian Jewish News (on Aug 2) as well the Polish American Journal's August issues, and the Center for White Rose Studies August newsletter.

Kubow tells us "the Day of Protest was initiated by the Polish Mid-Eastern Women’s Auxiliary Corps in Jerusalem and marked the plight of women, both gentile and Jewish, with a moment of silence" and that "in 1942, a small group of brave women initiated a moment of silence in recognition of the plight of others. They acted, by the only means available to them, on behalf of those who were powerless." Kubow asks that we follow in their example and do the same.
