Rezensionen
'No book on Jewish resistance during the Holocaust is better than James Glass's. The scope of his analysis, which ranges from the armed resistance of partisan groups to the spiritual resistance of Orthodox rabbis in the Holocaust's ghettos, is unrivaled. The depth of his reflection, which not only lays to rest the long-lived stereotype that Jews were passive victims in the Holocaust but also explores the ethical and religious beliefs that informed different and, at times, conflicting approaches to resistance, is more penetrating than anything previously written on such topics. Original in its scholarship, making skillful use of documents and oral testimony, and written in a captivating style, this book is a superb addition to the study of the Holocaust and its implications.' - Professor John K. Roth, Director, Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights, Claremont McKenna College, California, USA

'Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust provides important new information about how Strictly Orthodox Jews coped with the uniquely diabolical situation of Nazi genocide. The whole field of Orthodox Jewry and the Holocaust remains underexplored, and this book gives us valuable new material.' - Professor William D. Rubinstein, Department of History, University of Wales-Aberystwyth, UK.
