Transcript of Did Anyone Try To Save The Jews?

UPRISINGS IN THE GHETTOS? People tried to rescue the Jews by trying to hide them or by giving them false identities, and also deporting or exporting them to much safer conditions. Rescue efforts ranged from the isolated actions of individuals to organized networks both small and large. Resistance- An underground organization
engaged in a struggle for national liberation
in a country under military or totalitarian
occupation. The resistance movement in Europe during WW2 played an important part in defeating the Nazi military. “Right from the start, communist resistance achieved a remarkable cohesion and efficiency because they had long been used to working underground.” Jean-Léon Charles The resistance movement was about Europe's secret armies or partisans gathering information for the Allies, destroying communication lines, assisting in the escape of POW's and openly attacking the Germans once the retreats on both the western and eastern fronts had started. Their work was vital for Allies but it was also extremely dangerous as any mistakes in security were ruthlessly exploited by the Gestapo. Resistance movements happened in all Nazi-occupied countries. Physical hiding represented an attempt to hide one's complete existence from the outside world. The second was identity hiding, which is where Jew's pretended to be Gentiles. Their main goals were to organize uprisings, break out of the ghettos, and join partisan units in the fight against the Germans. Weapons were smuggled into ghettos. The Warsaw ghetto uprising in the spring of 1943 was the largest single revolt by Jews. Hundreds of Jews fought the Germans and their auxiliaries in the streets of the ghetto. Thousands of Jews refused to obey German orders to report to an assembly point for deportation. In the end the Nazis burned the ghetto to the ground to force the Jews out. Although they knew defeat was certain, Jews in the ghetto fought desperately and valiantly. Under the most adverse conditions, Jewish prisoners succeeded in initiating resistance and uprisings in some Nazi camps. On October 14, 1943, prisoners in Sobibor killed 11 SS guards and police auxiliaries and set the camp on fire. About 300 prisoners escaped, breaking through the barbed wire and risking their lives in the minefield surrounding the camp. Over 100 were recaptured and later shot. Students will be able to understand the difficulty
in trying to hide during the Holocaust and also
trying to rise against the Nazi's. HOW DID SOME PEOPLE TRY TO RESCUE JEWS THE
