Prof Wolf Gruner; Defiance and Protest. Forgotten Individual Jewish Resistance in Nazi Germany

Jewish resistance during the Holocaust is mostly understood as rare armed group activities. By contrast, based on a new approach that focuses on individual acts and uses new sources, the talk by Prof Wolf Gruner will demonstrate that German Jews performed countless acts of resistance between 1933 – 1945. The results of this research promise to dramatically change the common misperception of a passive Jewish population.

Wolf Gruner is a professor of history at the University of Southern California and founding director of the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research. He is also the author of ten books on the Holocaust and his most recent book deals with the persecution of the Jews in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.
