A discussion with Judy Batalion about her new book "The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos," which has already been optioned by Steven Spielberg. In it, she tells the story of Jewish women who became resistance fighters in the ghettos.
In this BookTalk, Judy tells us about the incredible bravery these women exhibited, why it took so long to center their stories, and what it means to finally remember them today.
Read Judy’s powerful essay about these resistance fighters in the New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/18/opinion/sunday/Jewish-women-Nazi-fighters.html

Human beings have an astonishing evolutionary gift: agile imaginations that can shift in an instant from thinking on a scale of seconds to a scale of years or even centuries. The need to draw on our capacity to think long-term has never been more urgent, whether in areas such as public health care, to deal with technological risks, or to confront the threats of an ecological crisis.
What can we do to overcome the tyranny of the now? The drivers of short-termism threaten to drag us over the edge of civilizational breakdown, while ways to think long-term are drawing us towards a culture of longer time horizons and responsibility for the future of humankind.
Creating a cognitive toolkit for challenging our obsession with the here and now offers conceptual scaffolding for answering one of the most important questions of our time: How can we be good ancestors?
Roman Krznaric is a public philosopher who writes about the power of ideas to change society.
His newest book on the history and future of long-term thinking is The Good Ancestor: A Radical Prescription for Long-Term Thinking. Other books include Empathy, The Wonderbox and Carpe Diem Regained, which have been published in more than 20 languages.
Krznaric founded the traveling Empathy Museum and is especially interested in the challenges of how we extend empathy to future generations. Roman Krznaric is also a Long Now Research Fellow.

Please join us for a timely discussion on fighting racism as a multiracial Jewish Community with Ilana Kaufman, Executive Director of the Jews of Color Field Building Initiative, Gamal Palmer, Schusterman Fellow 2019, Ginna Green, political consultant and strategist, and ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.
Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed horrifying acts of police brutality targeting Black lives, coupled with insidious racism that continues to underpin our country’s systems and structures, all on the heels of a global pandemic. But let’s be clear – the violent racism we are witnessing now has always existed in this country. This moment and many before it demand dedicated focus and resources to actively address and fight racism. Listen in to hear from our panel of experts and influencers on Jewish diversity, racial equity, and the role of Jewish leaders, institutions, and communities in serving and supporting our entire multiracial community. Hear what that means in particular for Black community members and why we must unequivocally say Black Lives Matter, and Black Jewish Lives Matter.
