INRO : Armed resistance took place only during stage 3 (did not occur in the other stages) b/c the jews had to understand their fate was certain death. Armed resistance came in moment when a small group of young people who had policitcal commitments, ideologically engaged in pre war politics and continued to be aware of what was going on, created extensive links of communication betw ghettos and networks of information realized that the Jews were being systematically murdered, so it depended on understanding of the nazi plan. These two documents give us insight into the goals, obstacles, and dangers of resistance. DOCUMENTS : “Facing Death in the Bialystok Ghetto”--Mordechai Tenenbaum (the leader of the Bialystock revolt) “Kovner’s Testimony on Wittenberg”—Abba Kovner (second in command in the ghetto resistance) GOALS: 1. choose ones way of dying opposed to be a victim-- In FD the argument is made that they are considering two different means of death since attack/resis means certain death, and also death by the hands of the Nazis. The odds were so against the Jews that they knew they weren’t going to survive if resisted within the ghetto. Kovner
