This landmark book, updated with a new preface to include findings from the archives of independent Lithuania, presents the first comprehensive account of organized resistance against the Nazis by Lithuanian Jews. Dov Levin, an eminent Israeli scholar who was once a member of the Kovno ghetto underground and later a fighter with the Lithuanian partisans, describes the declining social and economic position of Lithuanian Jews in the years leading up to World War II and their plight first under Soviet, and later under German occupation. He chronicles the activities of Jews who left their homeland to join the Soviet Army, those who remained behind to fight in the forests and in the ghettos of Vilna, Kovno, Shavli, and Svencian, and those who fought in the concentration camps. FIGHTING BACK is the product of decades of research, involving the study of memoirs, trial transcripts, military documents, ghetto and battlefield diaries, interviews, and contemporary Jewish accounts published outside Lithuania.Language Notes:
