Amidah: Standing Up
Jewish Resistance during the Holocaust
Price: $25


The old image, still prevalent today, that Jews went ‘like lambs to the slaughter’ falls into the realm of historical legend. Jews resisted the Nazi genocide, in groups or as individuals, in public or in hiding. Their strategies of defence and survival took many forms. This program and accompanying booklet looks at the individual experiences of those Jews who had the strength to fight back, either through armed means or simply by not giving up their ideals or belief. Students will be challenged to think about their environment and what their actions can achieve.

Resisting the Holocaust addresses Syllabus topics for Stages 3, 4 & 5 (Years 6-10) in English, Studies of Religion and History.
