05/20/2003 Archived Entry: "Why didn't the Jews fight back?"

WHY DIDN'T THE JEWS FIGHT BACK AGAINST HITLER? And what motivated those who finally did defend themselves, like the prisoners of Sobibor and Treblinka, and the young people of the Warsaw and Vilna ghettos? Ian McCollum has written An Inquiry into the General Lack of Violent Jewish Resistance to the Holocaust. It's an easy read on a complex subject.

Ian doesn't say so, but many of the reasons for the lack of Jewish resistance sound a lot like what we hear from our neighbors right now.
