HGS 517/717 - Resistance in the Holocaust

This course analyzes various types of Jewish resistance during the Holocaust. Through a careful study of primary and secondary sources, the course will discuss the multifaceted forms of resistance staged by the Jewish people who were caught up in the murderous attempts of Nazi perpetrators. Apart from what is traditionally understood by armed resistance, cultural, religious, social, and educational responses (Hebrew: amidah) to the destruction will be studied.
