While enduring the unimaginable suffering and torment of Auschwitz, the only response some prisoners could abide was armed resistance.
Hear stories about prisoners that fought back with courage, ingenuity, the will to survive, and the resolve to save others or die trying in a virtual program with Dr. Robert Jan Van Pelt, internationally recognized authority on Auschwitz history. His talk will include details about intricate deceptions, compelling confrontations, and bold escape stories from Jewish, Romani, Polish, and Soviet POW prisoners.
This program is the second in a series exploring armed resistance during the Holocaust, made possible with the generous support of Harvey L. Miller and Jack Miller, in loving memory of their parents, Ida and Ben Miller, and their brother, Arnold Miller.
