Lesson Seven: Jewish Resistance during the Holocaust

About this lesson

Lesson Seven of the Museum of Jewish Heritage Holocaust Curriculum examines the many forms of resistance that Jews took against the Nazis during World War II, including armed resistance, spiritual resistance, and nonviolent resistance. Hiding and escape were other forms of defiance, and resistance can also be seen in attempts to record Jewish communal life under Nazi rule. Students will examine photographs and art created in secret in a camp in order to explore the variety of resistance that took place.
