By Patrick Henry, Editor
This volume puts to rest the myth that the Jews went passively to the slaughter like sheep. Indeed, Jews resisted in every Nazi-occupied country – in the forests, the ghettos, and the concentration camps. Contributors to this book are among the most renowned Holocaust authorities in Israel, Europe, Canada, and the United States. The essays treat Jewish resistance in France, Belgium, Italy, Greece, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, the Yishuv, Germany, Austria, Croatia, Poland, Romania, the Ukraine, Belarus, Slovakia, and Hungary.
