Resisting Genocide

This chapter focuses on the survival and rescue of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II and advocates the use of quantitative methods in conducting research on the Holocaust. Citing the complex and sometimes surprising correlation between the presence of resistance fighters in the Dutch city governments and the arrests of hidden Jews, it stresses the importance of applying multivariate analysis to the study of the survival rate of Jews during the war. It also considers Helen Fein's use of quantitative methods in 1979 to explain differences in survival rates of Jews in twenty-two countries and territories occupied by Germany. Finally, the chapter analyses the role of organised resistance during the Holocaust in the Netherlands.

Keywords:   survival, rescue, Jews, World War II, quantitative methods, research, Holocaust, Helen Fein, Germany, Netherlands
