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

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
