Focused on the resistance of Jews to the Nazi regime and its plan to exterminate European Jewry, this 90-minute feature documentary with the working title Resistance: They Fought Back, along with a website, social media campaign, and educational materials, is designed to illuminate an all-too-unknown aspect of the conventional Holocaust story. Our goal is nothing less than a corrective to the dominant narrative of the Holocaust, one in which Jewish victims quietly went to their fate “like sheep to the slaughter.” To the contrary, there were more than ninety armed rebellions in ghettos and concentration camps, thousands of Jewish partisans fighting in the forests, as well as countless examples of non-violent resistance against the Nazis.

Special Guest: Director and Emmy Award Winner Paula Apsell
