This inspiring book examines the often incredible and nearly always
tragic examples of Jewish resistance in ghettos and concentration
camps during the Nazis 'Final Solution'. It shows that the Warsaw
Uprising in Poland during April to May 1944 was not the only
occasion of defiant opposition. Throughout the Nazis' extermination
programme Jews and other prisoners fought back against their
murderers, often with stunning results. The Germans were nearly
always taken by surprise by the sudden emergence of armed Jewish
resistance and often paid dearly. This happened in ghettos and
concentration campos (including Treblinka, Auschwitz, Syrels and
Sobibor) throughout Poland and the Ukraine. Some Jews tried to stop
the machinery of the Holocaust by rising up and destroying the gas
chambers while others bravely tried to take over an extermination
camp and escape en masse. In virtually every case the brave men and
women who volunteered to fight back paid with their lives.
Importantly these men and women are not just portrayed as victims
but also as brave and resourceful fighters and resisters against
their tragic fate.These are stories that are uplifting, inspiring
and often profoundly moving.
