This is part one of the story of the Bielski Brothers- a tightly knit group of 4 brothers- the yoiungest 13, and the oldest 33, who formed an armed resistance group in the forests of Belarus during WWII to save Jews from certain death in the hands of the Nazis. Led by Tuvia Bielsky, the group created a working community in the forest which was capable of defending itself against Germans, formed an alliance with a local Russian partisan group from whom they were able to get their first weapons, and raided German patrols and camps for weapons, medicine, and food on a regular basis, killing hundreds of Nazis in the process. They saved 1, 246 Jews from death through their efforts, which basically went unheard of until fairly recetly when Tuvia Bielsky's journal was translated from Yiddish to English. The movie "Defiance", starring Daniel Craig, which was released in 2008 and is currently shown on Netflix, is closely based upon this story. In later parts we will cover the making of the movie.
