Four Winters: A Story of Jewish Partisan Resistance and Bravery in WWII

May 18, 3:30: Virtual Q&A with filmmaker Julia Mintz

ENCORE PRESENTATION! Over 25,000 Jewish partisans fought back against the Nazis and their collaborators from deep within the forests of WWII’s Eastern Europe, Ukraine, and Belarus. Against extraordinary odds, they escaped Nazi slaughter, transforming from young innocents raised in close-knit families to courageous resistance fighters. Shattering the myth of Jewish passivity, the last surviving partisans tell their stories of resistance in Four Winters: A Story of Jewish Partisan Resistance and Bravery in WWII, revealing a stunning narrative of heroism and resilience.

"An enduring warning amid today's global struggle with authoritarian forces."
Nicholas Rapold, The New York Times
