The National WWII Museum Hosts Women of Courage Lecture

Presented in partnership with the Junior League of New Orleans and the National Council of Jewish Women Greater New Orleans Section.

Hear from World War II survivors Anne Levy and Nicole Spangenberg
as they share their stories of bravery and commitment.   

There are endless stories of courage that took place during World War II, with new narratives being shared with audiences every year. Hear two personal accounts from the extraordinary women who experienced them - Anne Levy and Nicole Spangenberg.

Anne was a young girl in Poland hiding from the Axis with her family, while Nicole, a French teenager in the Resistance, risked her life to help her countrymen fight the Nazis. Both women, who live locally, survived - and the experiences shaped the rest of their lives.
