Women in Resistance: Reflections on Nazi Europe and Apartheid South Africa
Facing ever more anti-Semitism, the three Steinmetz sisters left fascist Austria in the 1930s.
Gundl Steinmetz first fought against Franco in the Spanish Civil War and later joined the Resistance in Brussels. Meanwhile her older sisters Selma and Berthe fought in the French Resistance against the Nazis.

Sonja Frank, curator of the special exhibition for the Documentation Centre of Austrian Resistance (DÖW) takes us through her family history and an untold story of three extraordinary sisters.

Justice Albie Sachs will then provide insight into women in resistance in South Africa and their memorialisation. We will explore the thoughts and ideas behind the Judith Mason installation ‘Blue Dress’ in the Constitutional Court.
