Spiritual and Physical Resistance During the Shoah
Jewish children, women, and men fought back – from reciting the Exodus story from memory on Passover to blowing up a crematorium at Birkenau. A program in partnership with StandWithUs.

Despite the threat of punishment or death, Jews secretly practiced religious rituals or studied sacred texts, which many knew by heart. Others rose up in armed rebellion, outnumbered but determined, while young children acted as couriers for the resistance, risking their lives to pass messages. In the face of destruction, hope was never lost.

The Holocaust Education Center at StandWithUs seeks to help teens and young adults educate themselves about the consequences of hate and bullying, and the importance of learning from the murder of six million Jews during World War II. They offer responses to incidents of Holocaust denial and swastika graffiti and have developed a comprehensive menu of preemptive, engaging, and user-friendly presentations for teachers. StandWithUs can deliver these presentations to schools during the academic year without requiring teachers to be trained in advance. They offer 23 interactive presentation options to engage students of diverse backgrounds and interests, including learning through classic PowerPoint, online and/or in-person presentations through photography, psychology, film, and/or art.
