From 1940 to 1945, resistance throughout Nazi-occupied Europe was a major challenge, given the extensive military might of the Third Reich developed since 1933. Resistance in Germany, however, was especially dangerous, with the omnipresent threat of arrest, torture, imprisonment or the concentration camps, which often enough, meant death. Despite this life-threatening danger, there were many expressions of resistance throughout the Reich.
Boston College, in conjunction with Taurus Investment Holding and several co-sponsors, will host a one-day conference on various aspects of resistance to the National Socialist government in Germany.
The conference will explore the following themes: Spiritual resistance, military resistance, political resistance, resistance then and now.
The conference will be followed by an evening Holocaust concert. Conference proceedings will be published, and made available in the fall.
