Rachel Golub HIS 328 – The Holocaust Dr. Alison Rose 12/14/07 Jewish Resistance during the Holocaust Many people believe that there was very little resistance from the Jews during the  Holocaust. However, I was surprised to learn how much the Jews actually fought back.  Resistance against the Nazis took many different forms throughout the war. It was Yehuda  Bauer, a historian and scholar of the Holocaust, who wrote that resistance to the Nazis was  comprised not only of physical opposition, but any activity that gave the Jews dignity and  humanity in the most humiliating and inhumane conditions. Some acts of resistance were  planned out beforehand, while others were done at random. There was even some resistance  from Non-Jews as well. The first type of resistance from the Jews was done in the ghettos. The most famous  of these was the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. In the summer of 1942, at least 300,000 Jews were  deported from the Warsaw ghetto to Treblinka. This was one of the largest deportations
