Jewish Resistance Against the Nazis

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

What forms did resistance take during the Holocaust? Henry challenges the myth and misconceptions around lack of resistance, showing that — from armed revolt; flight; the rescue of individuals non-Jews;  smuggling of Jews into countries; to the smuggling food, clothing, and medicine into the ghettos, to putting on plays, reading poetry, organizing orchestras and art exhibits, forming schools, leaving diaries, and praying —revolt and resistance occured at every level in every Nazi-occupied country.

Patrick Henry is the Cushing Eells Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Literature and Foreign Languages at Whitman College.

Cosponsored with Oregon Historical Society and Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education, in conjunction with the OHS exhibition World War II: A World at War, A State Transformed
