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 Childrens Camp· The Warsaw Ghetto Youth Movement· Intermarriage in Nazi Germany· Jewish Women in the French Resistance· Foundations of Resistance in German-Occupied DenmarkThis 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.
