I wonder sometimes about the moral dimension of resistance. Partisans attack Germans and scoot back to the forest, etc. The Germans execute 20 villagers. The partisans know this will happen. The Germans are morally responsible for the crime, but what about the partisans who carried out the attack that brought retribution on others? I don't know the answer myself. Would i resist if others paid for that with their lives?
I know that the Germans did that in the East, particularly in Russia, but did they do that in the occupied territories in the West - France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Denmark, etc? I thought that there was a racial element to things as the Nazis considered the Slavs as not proper humans?
