This lecture will review the highlights of giving women their place in Holocaust history, as well as some examples of lost opportunities.Dr. Rochelle G. Saidel is founder and executive director of the Remember the Women Institute, a not-for-profit organization based in New York City that carries out and encourages research and cultural projects that integrate women into history.
