Their contributions to history have never been recognized. Meet Cpl. Daisy Lazare, Sgt. Miriam Freedman, S/O Rose Goodman and Pvt. Esther (Bubis) Thorley, as well as the legions of Jewish women volunteers who raised funds, packed boxes, made sandwiches, and even built the bombs.
I'm doing another 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain lecture. This time, it is on Friday August 14, 2020 for the Royal Air Force Museum in London, England and the Royal Air Forces Association's "Operation Connect." (Their ad for my event isn't posted yet but it will be shortly.)
The live stream is scheduled for bright and early Friday Aug. 14: We begin at 11 a.m. UK time, which is 6 a.m. Toronto time.
Special guest: meet the son of F/O William Henry Nelson, the only Canadian Jewish pilot to win a D.F.C. in that epic campaign.
