Resistance to the Nazi regime took on many forms and expressions across ghettos in former Soviet-occupied territories. Log in to Illinois Holocaust Museum’s virtual program with Professor Elissa Bemporad, Jerry and William Ungar Chair in East European Jewish History and the Holocaust at Queens College and The Graduate Center, CUNY, as she shares stories of armed resistance in the Minsk ghetto.
