Dr. Na'ama Bela Shik is the director of the Educational Technology Department at the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem.

In the second part of The Holocaust: An Introduction, professor Dreifuss and Dr. Shik trace the history of the Holocaust in Europe, the response of the locals in Nazi-occupied territories, and the resistance against Nazi oppression.
