Here's a taster:

Jewish resistance
Organized armed resistance was the most forceful
form of Jewish opposition to the Nazis.
· Occupied countries: Jewish authorities in Palestine sent
parachutists into Hungary to aid Jews. In France, various
elements of the Jewish underground consolidated to form
the Armee Juive (Jewish Army).
· Camps: At Treblinka, prisoners with stolen weapons
attacked the SS staff. Most of the rebels were shot, though
several dozen prisoners escaped. At Auschwitz, four
Jewish women successfully blew up the gas ovens ­ all four
were executed.
· Ghettos: The inhabitants of the Warsaw ghetto rose up in
rebellion when news leaked out that the Nazis planned to
deport them all to the Treblinka extermination camp.
