About the program:

The old image, that Jews went “like lambs to the slaughter” falls into the realm of historical legend. Jews resisted the Nazi genocide, in groups and as individuals, in public and in hiding. Their strategies of defense and survival took many forms, with those who fought back against the Nazis doing so through armed resistance, or by finding ways of holding onto their beliefs and ways of life.

Resisting the Holocaust highlights the courageous acts of resistance by Jews during this difficult time.
