Jewish resistance: a reminder

by Maskil on October 18, 2007

At the end of the day, nothing changes, especially not the numbers. Despite that, however, it’s good to sometimes be reminded that there was resistance – sometimes effective resistance – to Germany’s war against the Jews, and that the Warsaw uprising was not a completely isolated event.

Educating (or being educated) about the Holocaust can numb the very soul. Perhaps it’s time more of this side of the story became part of Holocaust Studies syllabi.
