During this presentation, we will discuss the meaning of resistance, including clear examples of each as demonstrated during the Holocaust. (Smuggling food and even praying while in a concentration camp were forms of resistance!) We will be examining and discussing clips from the following five films: The Courage to Care,Academy Award-winning interviews of those who saved Jews at great risk to their own lives; Defiance, focusing on the bravery and tenacity of the Bielski Brothers; Escape from Sobibor, the true story of the only successful escape from a death camp; Sophie Scholl: The Final Days, the efforts of a secret German organization of college students who were willing to die for their beliefs; and Nicholas Winton/The Power of Good, profiling the great work of Nicholas Winton who rescued hundreds of Jewish children from Czechoslovakia in 1938.
