Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust: A Talk by Erica Nadelhaft
Jewish resistance to Nazi oppression took many forms. The armed uprisings in the ghettos and camps are the most well-known examples of resistance, but these uprisings could not have happened without the many other types of resistance that occurred beforehand. This lecture will look at the different types of unarmed resistance that took place, the barriers to resistance that existed both within and outside of the Jewish community, and the armed uprisings in the ghettos and the camps. There will be time for questions and conversation following the presentation.
