Resistance Then and Now: Mary Dingee Fillmore

Meet author Mary Dingee Fillmore on November 15th at 7pm, at Brooks Memorial Library!

She asks us to consider the following questions: "What would I have done to stop the Holocaust? What should I resist in our world today?" To help us find answers, Mary will examine the dilemmas people faced in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam – how people resisted and what happened when they did.
