#1806 Women of the Holocaust say #MeToo
In 2017, women around world came forward to talk about their experiences of sexual violence and harassment. Since then, women everywhere have spoken out… including Holocaust survivors.
Francine Lazarus repressed memories of sexual assault for decades. During the Holocaust, one of her protectors became what she feared the most: a predator. But it wasn’t until, recently, when she heard fellow Holocaust survivor Lily Wolf share her own story of sexual assault that she felt brave enough to speak out.
