The Unknown Partisans

"A shtetl in the woods" says one former inhabitant of the largest Jewish partisan group in Nazi-occupied Europe, a complete community hidden deep in the Belorussian forest, and led by the Bielskis. Unique among fighting partisan groups, the Bielskis would take in women, children and the elderly: their goal was always to save Jewish lives. In this fascinating film, former inhabitants, including the two surviving Bielski brothers, speak out about their efforts: fighting effectively against Nazi forces, destroying fortifications and sabotaging communications, liberating Jews from the ghetto, and taking revenge on those who betrayed Jews to the Nazis. A powerful look at resistance to the Holocaust. Grades 9 and up. Color and black-and-white. 53 minutes. Films for the Humanities. ©1996.
