This bibliography of books and articles on the subject of Jewish resistance during the Holocaust compiles basic data on scholarly and other significant writings dealing with the period 1939-45. It focuses primarily on Jewish armed resistance to Nazi Germany and its Axis allies throughout Europe. This list is by no means exhaustive; the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies will update the list as new and other significant works appear or come to our attention.
