“A partisan, by definition” wrote Elie Wiesel, “is a fighter who sabotages an occupying army. The Jewish partisans waged guerrilla warfare against the Nazis, but much more importantly, they defied the extermination of their people, their culture, and their religion, fighting to preserve the memory of their past and the possibility of their future.”
Over 25,000 Jewish partisans fought back against the Nazis and their collaborators from deep within the forests of Eastern Europe, Ukraine and Belarus. In FOUR WINTERS we meet eight of them – among the last alive today – whose stories of transformation from young innocents to courageous resistance fighters, of survival against extraordinary odds, of heroism and resilience, shatter the myth of Jewish passivity throughout the Second World War.
Join us for this remarkable film and our special guest speaker (at both screenings), FOUR WINTERS’ writer-director-producer Julia Mintz.
Saturday, March 9th, 7:30 pm at the Alexander Grass Campus for Jewish Life
Sunday, March 10 – 4:30 pm at the Grass Campus
