Document Summary

Like sheep to the slaughter idea of jewish passivity during the holocaust. Raul hiberg (1961) 2000 years of passivity and waiting out the storm . Pervasive belief that the jews that were murdered in the holocaust didn"t do anything to stop it. This is an example of victim blaming in the context of the holocaust. The jews as conditioned to be passive to discrimination. We cant use the same lens we use to examine other resistance fighters when we examine the jews. Not between life and death but rather a choice of how to die. Wanting people to stand up is not an accurate historical account of what was going on. The nazi"s always made it seem like there was hope for survival. Perpetrators and victims do not all act the same they are individual human beings. Different than resistance which is aligned with violent symbolism. Maintaining religious customs in the face of discrimination.
