Author Talk and Lunch with Matthew Brzezinski: Heroism in the Holocaust

Matthew Brzezinski recently published his fourth book, Isaac’s Army, a nonfiction narrative set in the Holocaust that was named a Finalist for the 2012 National Jewish Book Awards. This talk will discuss the myth of passivity during the Holocaust by showing that resistance was far more widespread than is generally acknowledged. He will talk about the different forms that resistance took, and how extraordinarily difficult it was for Jews to resist in an organized manner as compared to other groups in occupied Europe. He will also address how in some cases, not resisting was the ultimate act of courage.
