“If a few hundred Jewish fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto could hold off the Wehrmacht for almost a month with only a handful of weapons, six million Jews armed with rifles could not so easily have been herded into cattle cars.”
Silveira v Lockyer, (9th Cir. 2003) (Kozinski, J. dissenting.)
If you want Never Again to really be Never Again, protect the Second Amendment and be armed and trained.
People shouldn’t have to die so that we can share videos like this.
NOTE: The Jews were disarmed before they were starved. Disarming the Jews was the very first thing Hitler did. Disarming citizens is the first thing every single government intent on genocide does. Once citizens are disarmed, government can do anything. And they do.
A common question when studying the Holocaust is, “Why didn’t the Jews resist?”
But they did.
This video discusses different forms and types of resistance, both spiritual and armed.
In the unprecedented inhumanity of the Holocaust there were Jews who found the strength and the courage, both physical and spiritual, to retain their humanity and resist hopelessness and dehumanization.
The story of their resistance is a human story that shows the heights that human beings can reach, even in the depths of despair.
