Like Sheep to the Slaughter, Like Sheep to the Occupation

There is no comparing the Holocaust and the occupation, but the act of resistance is equally legitimate and just in both cases.

I will never forget the fierce arguments in the schoolyard. I was young then, a loud proponent of the “How did they go like sheep to slaughter?” school. We were ashamed of them. Ashamed that they didn’t resist, didn’t fight, didn’t struggle. We wanted fewer martyrs and more heroes on Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Day.
