The French Heroines
An Evening with Dr. Monique Saigal

Monday, June 16 @ 6:30 p.m.

Chabad Jewish Community Center
3579 Arlington Ave. Ste. 100
Riverside, CA 92506

Light refreshments will be served

 
  Monique Saigal, an expert and author on women who served in the French Resistance, will speak on the stories of the eighteen French women who resisted the Nazi occupation. They are tied to Dr. Saigal’s own story as a Jewish child hidden with a Catholic family during the Second World War. The evening will honor the courage of these women, the sacrifices of Dr. Saigal’s own family members who risked their lives in the Resistance, and the memory of her grandmother who died at Auschwitz. Their stories of courage and strength will serve to inspire.

Dr. Monique Saigal is a professor of French at Pomona College in Claremont, CA. She is a recipient of the Dr. Philip Weiss Inaugural Award for Storytelling for Peace and Human Rights from the University of Manitoba and the 2013 Faculty Alumni Service Award from Pomona College.
