Oppressed people will resist.  This is a common trend in history.  No matter how many times our history books try to tell us that slaves, peasants and workers suffered in silence, the real history reveals they all resisted their oppression.  But what if there was very little hope that your oppression can be ended?  What if the expected result would be death in any case?  The history of the Holocaust provides us answers to these questions.  In the streets of the ghettoes, in the concentration camps, even in the death camps like Auschwtiz, people resisted. They organized, they fought and they made use of the existing left organizations that survived all this misery.  Their resistance in extreme and seemingly hopeless times can shed light on our resistance today.
