Presented by Dr. Andre Krauss


Compliance or resistance? The Jewish resistance in Nazi-occupied Europe is one of the most contested questions in Holocaust history. It emerged as one of the principle subtexts at the Eichmann trial in Jerusalem in 1962. Witness testimonies and subsequent interpretations in Hannah Arendt’s reports spoke of the lack of significant Jewish resistance. Could they have done more? This lecture will revisit the arguments about this topic in view of Holocaust historiography.
