Resistance During Nazi occupation in Europe there were some groups that put up resistance against them. In this presentation weare going to show you some examples of anti-Nazi resistance. Jewish members of the Resistance
Warsaw GhettoThe Warsaw ghetto was a place in the Polish capital (Warsaw). In1943 the ghetto was so overpopulated by Jews that Nazi soldiersentered with the only objective of “emptying it” (this meantkilling and deporting Jews to camps). Nevertheless some Jewsdid not accept this and upraised. As a consequence they wereinvolved in a miniwar that lasted 3 months and left 95% of theinhabitants dead and the whole ghetto destroyed.
Young oppositors to the NazisThe Nazis had several opposing groups; some of them were TheEdelweiss Pirates and The Swing Movement.• The Swing Movement were middle class teenagers who were influenced by english and american cultures. They were persecuted by the Nazis.• The Edelweiss Pirates was formed by working class teenagers who caused serioius worries to the Nazis because they disrupted Nazi youth and took part in revolts and boicots.
