Partisans of Vilna by Josh Waletzky( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does a community respond to a threat so vast and inhuman as to beggar the imagination? How does an individual resist that threat, when resistance may bring harm to the very people one is trying to defend? This documentary records the testimony of Holocaust survivors who, as young Jewish men and women in the Lithuanian city of Vilna, engaged in armed resistance against the Nazis, often in opposition to fellow Jews. Politically active Jewish youth, many members of vigorous Zionist and Socialist groups, realized what was happening, and in 1942 formed an organized resistance. To fight the Nazis was, in the eyes of many Vilna Jews, to threaten the lives of all those who remained in the ghetto. But to submit to the Nazis was also to support a murderous regime and participate in the annihilation of one's own people. The film addresses a question history has answered: Was it better to preserve life at any cost, or to risk death in order to preserve honor?
Scrolls of testimony by Abba Kovner( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and Hebrew and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scrolls of Testimony is powerful, dramatic and compelling - the testimony of the author woven with others' eyewitness accounts, diary entries, poems, and even last wills and testaments. Many of these were carefully recorded and hidden during the war at great personal risk to the writers, who desperately wanted to record the unfathomable events before them. Regarded by many as one of the great masterpieces of Holocaust literature, Scrolls of Testimony is indeed a modern Jewish classic. Kovner worked on the book until his death, and it remains his final tribute to the courage and dignity of the victims and a fulfillment of his promise to bring their testimony to future generations."--Jacket
