Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust

In the history of humanity, no other people has stood against such a powerful force bent on its annihilation, as had the Jewish People under the Nazi occupation. Even so, the Jews did not submit to their fate without a struggle.

This exhibition in the Ghetto Fighters’ House museum reveals the story of Jewish heroism and rebellion during the period of the Holocaust, in the context of the reality in which they arose; the unceasing attempts to preserve human dignity and carry out armed resistance, which was the pinnacle of the Jewish struggle.

The concept of resistance is a complex one, given to different interpretations and assessments. To discuss the question of resistance is to embark on a path that leads us to challenge our view of the Jewish People’s past, and its future.
