Overview

Follow the struggle of the thousands of Eastern European Jews who refused to become victims of the Holocaust in this documentary that proves there was more to the resistance movement than just the Warsaw Uprising. History books often give the impression that the Jews showed little resistance to the Nazi genocide, but modern historians estimate that at least 30,000 Jews sought refuge in the forests of Eastern Europe during World War II. Featuring historical photographs and original artwork by partisan fighter Alexander Bogen, this film examines the inspirational, lost chapter of the Holocaust that unfolded in the towns and forests of Lithuania, Poland, and Belarussia from 1941 through 1945. Interviews with eleven men and women highlight how the Jewish partisans overcame incredible obstacles while clinging to their humanity during one of history's darkest hours.
