The Holocaust: Exploring the Issues of Resistance and Rescue

ID : 1322   
« back to classes page
Among Holocaust topics requiring sustained examination are those of resistance and rescue.  In the first three classes we will challenge the view that Jews went to their deaths like “sheep to the slaughter” by examining the varieties of Jewish resistance including the dramatic Warsaw Ghetto Revolt and actions of the Bielski Partisans.  In the last half of class we will deal with rescue.  What actions were taken by individuals or groups to save Jews?  What motivated such actions?  How successful were they?  Among other cases we’ll look at the rescue work of the French community of La Chambon.  Reading will consist of documentary materials and several excerpts from books.
