Resistance: it takes many forms, from the simplest denial to an armed revolt. The Jews exhibited almost every form of resistance against the
Nazis which proved to the world the Jews are not that easy to extinguish. The Jews had several ways of exhibiting resistance, but "Organized armed resistance was the most powerful form of Jewish opposition"(Jewish Resistance). Armed resistance is an important aspect to revolting not only because it reinflicts the pain lashed upon the Jews, but it also shows the Jews have the ability to fight back and gives the world the knowledge that Jews do not go down easily. However, resistance is not only an act of violence since the Jews demonstrated several non-violent forms of resistance while locked up or being transported. Jews would escape into the forest and figured that by escaping they resisted the Nazi Party and reduced their chances of achieving their goal of exterminating all Jews on the planet(Acts of Resitance). By escaping Jews gave themselves a chance to live and warn others of their fate which was an excellent form of non-violent resistance since, generally speaking, no Germans were hurt. Resistance can take many shapes and forms which is why all Jews resisted one way or another, simply living is resistance(Acts of Resistance). The other reason Jews struggled so desperately to survive was not to merely see the light of another day, but to see the Germans become enraged by their "resistance", living.
Several camps resisted through violent ways which is what greatly impacted the Germans and the concentration or death camps located there.
Resistance took a violent appearance in the camp Treblinka when the inmates rose against their oppressors and set fire to Treblinka; however, only about 100 Jews managed to escape the campgrounds without being recaptured(Treblinka). The Jews fought back with an intensity which was unimaginable, but in retrospect was foreseeable. The Jews lashed out and dealt an immense amount of damage that not only took lives, but cost the Germans a hefty amount of money. Treblinka was not the only armed resistance that took place, in fact several others took place such as the one in Auschwitz-Birkenau. In Birkenau the Jews played out their plan of blowing up one of the crematoriums and then escape before the guards can capture them, but the plan went quickly South which led to the escapees to be shot or recaptured before leaving too far(Armed Resistance). Yes, the plan had failed, but it proved to the Germans when put against a wall the Jews will resist and fight back. Sobidor's revolt worked much better because of the thought out plan of luring SS guards into a storehouse, killing them, and taking their weapons which led to the escape of 200 inmates, yet only few survived to the war's end(Armed Resistance). The Jews have made several thought out plans that worked, and although not everyone resisted in violent ways every camp resisted the Nazi Party in some form. These organized...
