Resistance during the Holocaust

This pamphlet explores examples of armed and unarmed resis-
tance by Jews and other Holocaust victims. Many courageous acts
of resistance were carried out in Nazi ghettos and camps and by
partisan members of national and political resistance movements
across German-occupied Europe. Many individuals and groups in
ghettos and camps also engaged in acts of spiritual resistance such
as the continuance of religious traditions and the preservation of
cultural institutions. Although resistance activities in Nazi Germany
were largely ineffective and lacked broad support, some political and
religious opposition did emerge.
