Resistance Then and Now: Learning from the Dutch

A talk and discussion by Mary Fillmore, author of An Address in Amsterdam, an historical novel about a young Jewish woman who joins the resistance. The award-winning book has been widely recognized as a compelling story which shows how quickly a civilized society can deteriorate — and how possible it is for ordinary people, especially women, to take action against injustice. “Must-read” historical fiction, say Redbook, BuzzFeed, PopSugar, and Bookstr.
