About Joanne:
A resident of Las Vegas since 2004, Award-winning author, and popular public-speaker, Joanne D. Gilbert, grew up in Oak Park, Michigan—a predominantly Jewish suburb of Detroit, where many Holocaust Survivors had settled. 
Her most profound influence was her beloved Grandmother, Millie Wineman Ron, who had been able to get out of Vilna, Lithuania before the Germans came. 
Except for her 2 brothers, the rest of Millie's large family were murdered--along with most of Lithuania’s Jewish people.

Throughout her life, Joanne has been haunted by two questions:
1.Did the Jews fight the Nazis? 
2. Did Gentiles help their Jewish friends and neighbors?
After a 40 year career in education, Joanne was finally able to search for answers to these questions. 
Her first book, “WOMEN OF VALOR: Polish Resisters to the Third Reich,” was published to outstanding reviews in 2014. 

She is currently working on 2 books: 
“WOMEN OF VALOR: German, French, and Dutch Resisters to the Third Reich,” 
and for Young Adults, 
“A Victory for Miriam.”

Among her many speaking engagements in the US and Canada, Joanne was especially honored to be a speaker at the 2015 Krakow Jewish Cultural Festival, and she looks forward tobe a presenter in Warsaw this August, at the International Association of Jewish Genealogy Societies Annual Convention, as well as at the Warsaw Jewish Community Center.
