Event Details

Resisting the Nazis: The Jewish Resistance.  Dr. Ken Slepyan of Transylvania University shares the stories of the Jewish resistance to Hitler's plans in far eastern reaches of Europe, within the Polish ghettos and the concentration camps themselves.  Some who managed to flee Europe, leaving all they loved behind, volunteered to go back within the Allied forces to work as interpreters, spies, and soldiers on the front.  Here are the stories of some of the bravest people on earth.

This lecture is part of the supporting programming for "Americans and the Holocaust," a traveling exhibit from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington, D.C. in conjunction with the American Library Association.
