Overland Park, Kansas

The second session in the 1941 Seminar Series for Educators. Jewish life east of the Molotov-Ribbentrop line followed a unique trajectory during the Holocaust. Initially sheltered from German occupation, in 1941 this Jewish community was the first to face murderous Nazi policy. In response to this mass murder, Jews in the east formed significant communal responses. Among these were some of the most successful armed resistance movements of the Holocaust, the partisans. This session will explore the destruction of East European Jewish lives and culture, but also the role of resistance in the East.
Educators may register for individual sessions or the entire series.
