The Bielski Brothers: Jerusalem in the Woods

2008 NR

This gripping documentary recounts the little-known story of Tuvia, Asael and Zus Bielski, three Jewish brothers who, during World War II, established a resistance camp in the forests of Belarus and saved the lives of more than 1,200 Jews. Using archival records, historic analysis and compelling interviews with surviving members of the Bielski Brigade, the film paints a fascinating portrait of these largely unsung heroes.
