Resisting the Holocaust

The old image, that Jews went ‘like lambs to the slaughter’ falls into the realm of historical legend. Jews resisted the Nazi genocide from the very beginning and in diverse ways. In this session, participants will explore some of the many courageous acts of resistance by the Jewish people during this difficult time.


This course is part of a joint initiative between WEA Sydney, the Sydney Jewish Museum and Shalom Theatre to celebrate Rosenbaum’s Rescue in September at the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre. Be inspired by the previously unknown heroism of the Danes. In 1943, Danish fishermen risked their own lives to send 7,500 Jews to Sweden. They saved roughly 90% of the Danish Jewish population. In 2001, as Denmark revises their immigration policy, two men are struggling to separate fact from fiction. This gripping play examines the malleability of truth, shared history, and how easily our memories can be altered.
