Individuals and Small Groups in Jewish Resistance to the Holocaust by Ben Braber
A Case Study of a Young Couple and their Friends
This book aims to increase our knowledge and deepen the understanding of Jewish resistance to the Holocaust by examining personal circumstances and characteristics of Jewish resistance members and the formation of small Jewish resistance groups. It is a carefully researched case study, which examines primary and secondary sources, including evidence from interviews with resistance members and documentary evidence previously unavailable in English. It uses a qualitative analysis to investigate individual and small group manifestations of Jewish resistance during the German occupation of the Netherlands between 1940 and 1945. This study contributes to historiography, but its focus enables a different interpretation and displays a new view of history. It is a scholarly work but also accessible for the general reader interested in this subject.
