Waging Resistance: Partisan Groups and Individual Stories   View Event

  • Monday, November 13, 2023 at 3:00pm - 4:00pm
  • Calendar:   Workshops
  • Location:  Zoom
  • Description:  During the era of the Holocaust, a small group of individuals survived while waging resistance in the forests of Europe. These individuals were frequently part of partisan groups, units that moved from place to place within a geographic area subsisting by their own resourcefulness or with the rare assistance of local populations. In addition to the goal of survival, partisans also took action against the Nazi military to stop or hamper the war effort.This webinar will help educators further understand the partisan movement through the use of testimonies in the USC Shoah Foundation visual history archives and the Echoes & Reflections Unit 7 on Jewish Resistance. Register here. Echoes & Reflections' webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
