There is a widespread belief that during World War II Jews “went like lambs to the slaughter.” This view needs to be re-evaluated in light of a great deal of contrary evidence. We will first review the context in which the issue of Jewish resistance needs to be considered and the obstacles it had to confront. We will then examine the considerable degree to which Jews did, in fact, resist, both “spiritually” and “physically,” in ghettos, partisan groups, and even in the Death Camps.
