Resisting The Holocaust

Ruby Rohrlich Resisting The Holocaust
 
 




Although much has been written about the resistance to the Holocaust, public discussion still almost exclusively focuses on the resistance of male non-Jews. This reader seeks to redress the imbalance by looking at resistance from the perspective of the victims, almost exclusively Jewish and, in some cases, female. Their resistance embraces a variety of actions and movements, passive and active, performed by individuals, groups and nations. Leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines - including anthropology, history, politics, and sociology - supply us with engrossing accounts of individual resisters, family groups, movements, and the resistance of entire nations. Contributions cover:


· Primo Levi and Survival in Auschwitz
· The Auschwitz Children's Camp
· The Warsaw Ghetto Youth Movement
· Intermarriage in Nazi Germany
· Jewish Women in the French Resistance
· Foundations of Resistance in German-Occupied Denmark

This book places the fact of Jewish resistance in a new light and represents an important sourcebook on studies of the Holocaust, German and Jewish history.

""Resisting the Holocaust' is a fine, academic study, by no means the first, showing the reality of Jewish resistance, and disputing the stereotype of the passive Jew."" --Jewish Chronicle

""Ruby Rohrlich has given an immense service to this and future generations: her immaculate scholarship and her wide spectrum of interest has gathered together an archive of extraordinary value."" --Feminist Theology

""A short review cannot begin to do justice to the ... thought-provoking articles in the volume, which deserves to be on any recommended reading list in a Holocaust studies course."" --Studies in American Jewish Literature

""This is an important work, one that will help considerably in countering . . .historical nelect [of the topic of resistance]"" --H-NET Book Review

""Rohrlich's selection of essays . . . Provide documentation and affirmation of the possibility of human dignity."" --Seedhouse

""A good introduction to Jewish resistance during the Holocaust. It holds together well . . . covers so much ground, from armed resistance in the ghetto and the Nazi occupied lands, to strategies of survival in the death camps, a subject which several essays deal with especially well."" --Ethnic and Racial Studies

""The essays work well together and are thoughtful, well-documented investigations of the complexities of resistance to the Holocaust."" --Judaism
