The Resistance





On September 1, the people living in the Vilna ghetto revolted. Most of the participants were killed, but some managed to escape and joined partisan units. The following month, 600 Jewish and Russian prisoners attempted to escape at the Sobibor death camp. About 60 survived and joined the soviet partisans

Eastern Europe, especially Belorussia the western Ukraine and Lithuania, had wide expanses of forests and swamps which were ideal for guerrilla warfare. Joseph Stalin called for the establishment of an underground movement in the occupied territories to fight the enemy, and in June 1942, central headquarters were established for the entire partisan movement. With the arrival of Jews into the partisan movement, family camps evolved. These camps ranged from a several families to hundreds of them. The families took refuge in forests primarily in an effort to save lives and fight the enemy. Though few in numbers the partisans had an ability to move within enemy's territory, which the could then disrupt Nazi's activities. They cut the telephone, telegraph and electrical lines by destroying power stations to interfere enemy's communication.

The Nazis responded by bringing in tanks and machine guns, burning blocks of buildings and destroying the ghetto, killing 60,000 Jewish ghetto residents. This was the first uprising by an urban population in German-occupied terrotory
