Jewish Resistance During WW2
James Speller and Rocky Koinm 1st periord Citations
Book: Occupation and resistance by Simon Adams

What was the Jewish Resistance? The Jewish resistance was the Jews that escaped the ghettos/concentration camps and fled to the forests where they formed resistance groups against the Nazis. The Jewish resistance groups were not very large because very few Jewish people snuck out of the camps and ghettos and an even smaller number of Jews actually revolted. Jewish Resistance In the Ghettos Between 1941 and 1943, underground resistance movements were set up in the ghettos in Germany. Their main goals were to organize uprisings, break out of the ghettos and to take arms against the Germans. Jewish prisoners succeeded in some operations, even some at the extermination centers. When did the Jewish Resistances occur? The Uprisings usualy only occoured between 1941 and 1943 but, some uprisings have been reported from before and after those years. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/resistmap.html
What did the resistance do to fight against the Germans? The resistance did many things to the Germans to revolt, they sabotaged some of the Germans works, and they hid Jews from the Germans so they couldn’t find them, they attacked and killed Germans, they used underground newspapers to inform people of what’s happening, and even helped some Jews escape from the camps and ghettos. Where did the resistances occour? The resistances occurred in every country in Europe because no body in Europe wanted the Nazis to take over their country because if they did then it would become a dictatorship. Why did the Jewish rebel? The Jewish rebelled because they didn’t want to see the nation, which was home to the most Jews in the world (at the time), fall to the rule of Hitler and the Nazis and see alot of people perish for their religious beliefs. What happened as a result of the Jewish Resistance? A lot of the Jewish from the ghetto uprisings were deported to concentration camps, they were killed by German soldiers, or they were killed during the uprising. A lot of Jews being deported from the Warsaw ghetto after the uprising. This resistance is like the abolitionists during and before the civil war. They didn’t want slavery to continue to expand and take over the nation. To prevent the spread of slavery they helped slaves escape from the south, they also told the north of the horrid things that happen to slaves (turning them against slavery), and they did planed uprisings to threaten the south and free a lot of slaves. Relation to another event This is a death camp where they took the rebelling Jews they caught. A lot of people being deported from a ghetto area. These are locations of the underground movements and where ghetto uprisings occurred
