Hussein Al-alak and Marian McQueen will present an exploration for International Women’s Day of the whole range of activity undertaken by women to resist Nazi oppression during World War 2, both at home and abroad; both subtle and forceful; both from within and without.
Hussein will be speaking on the British women who served with the Special Operations Executive, who were instructed to “set Europe ablaze” on the direct orders of Winston Churchill.
Marian and colleagues from The Anne Frank Trust UK will speak about women caught up in the Holocaust, both Jewish and non-Jewish, who illustrate the complex nature of the continuum between victim and resistor in the struggle for survival.
Guests will then be able to explore the stories of other amazing women of resistance, both historical and contemporary, in the exhibition‘Anne Frank + You’.
’50 Shades of Resistance’ will take place within the exhibition ‘Anne Frank + You’
Venue: Z-arts, Stretford Rd , Hulme, M15 5ZA on Friday 8th March, 7pm-8.30pm.
