How did the Jews of Germany respond to the rise of Hitler, which put an end to their dreams of political equality in a liberal state and cultural integration into a civilized society? This lecture deals with the radically changed circumstances and the remarkable moral resistance that rabbis and laity displayed in the face of ever increasing oppression.
