Jewish resistance took place in 3 places: uprising in death camps, ghettos – this was not a path to survival rather symbolic, going down fighting, forests – difficult in Poland because there weren’t forests nearby and other groups like the AK didn’t want to share the space. Kill as many germans as possible – taking revenge for all the jewish life that have been taken, or attempt to preserve jewish family units of survival by setting up little camps deep in the forest, Bielski family most familiar of family camp. Those fighting in ghetto or forest had to face that jewish resistance wasn’t going to have the same standing as other national resistance groups. For jews in Poland do not find broad support in the popuatlion – they have to face the germans and a hostile population, and sometimes murders. Jewish resistance either had to be urban or in the countryside – couldn’t rely on popular support other nationalist groups could. Didn’t attract outside help because the jewish weren’t going to have any post war political clout. Jews face more obstacles in reisitance, disadvantaged position.
