The Bielski Brothers
The True Story of Three Men Who Defied the Nazis,
Built a Village in the Forest, and Saved 1,200 Jews
Peter Duffy 2003 336p 6 x 9
Of books about resistance to the Holocaust, this is one of the better stories: more defiant, surviving jews and more dead Nazis. In the dense forest of Belarussia, these three brothers lead an increasing number of escaped friends and relatives in circles for years: out maneuvering the Nazis and fighting a partisan guerilla war against them – bombing rail lines, ambushing them, and committing other acts of sabotage.
