Jewish Resistance during the Holocaust

Author Rachel L. Einwohner

  • Asks a different question about the Holocaust: not why didn't Jews resist, but why did they resist?
  • Expands readers' understanding of the Holocaust by illustrating European Jews' agency rather than passivity
  • Draws on archived testimonies from 120 survivors of the Warsaw, Vilna, and Lodz ghettos, including resisters as well as non-resisters
  • Compares a ghetto where sustained armed resistance happened with ghettos where it did not happen
