Location webinar
Date Wed, Jan 24, 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Duration   2h

Through the life histories of five Jewish people--a merchant, a homemaker, a real estate broker, and two teenagers--who bravely resisted persecution and defended themselves in Nazi Germany, Wolf Gruner's new book, "Resisters: How Ordinary Jews Fought Persecution in Hitler's Germany," upends the common notion of passive Jews in Hitler's Germany. The book draws on twelve years of research and expands the concept of resistance, challenging the misconception that Jews were passive.

During this webinar, Gruner discusses the inspiration, the contents, and purpose of his book. Echoes & Reflections Unit VII: "Jewish Resistance" is also covered to broaden student understanding and perspective of resistance efforts made by some Jews during the Holocaust. This webinar connects to the Jewish Resistance lesson plan on the Echoes & Reflections website.
