ABOUT THE EVENT:
Emmy Award-Winning Producer PAULA APSELL presents film segments of RESISTANCE: They Fought Back, her riveting new documentary followed by a discussion.
RESISTANCE: They Fought Back is focused on the resistance of Jews to the Nazi regime, this feature documentary is designed to illuminate an aspect of the conventional Holocaust story that may be known to scholars but not to most ordinary people. Their goal is nothing less than a corrective to the dominant narrative of the Holocaust, one in which Jewish victims went passively to their deaths "like sheep to the slaughter".
