Summary Defiance The Bielski Partisans

Defiance The Bielski Partisans

The author a holocaust survivor tells of the largest armed rescue of Jews by Jews during WWII. Though I read this about twenty years ago the impact this book had on me was profound I think it is a critical story that should be reuired reading while studying the Holocaust during World War II It highlights courageous young men who had a profound impact on the people of their region It lifted my spirit as I saw what seemed so insurmountable challenged and conuered The Hungarian Jewish Bielski brothers and other family members along with a few friends sought refuge from Hitler s reign of terror they decided to hide in the woods rather than risk capture Others who also had feared the control of Hitler over their country also joined them later Word got out that people were hiding and others came asking to join them In essence though not intending to do so they started a micro city in those woods that lasted several years There were many close calls where others were captured while guarding the community or foraging Strict rules were in place and very thoroughly followed to prevent any form of exposure to anyone not a part of the community To reveal their existence was to risk the lives of all in the community Those who temporary forgot these rules were given the death penalty Those surviving in this world faced so many hardships and their will to survive and fight rather than uit was amazing I had seen the movie Defiance before reading this book the movie was very true to the book but of course it did not capture all the nuances of that between the covers I highly recommend experiencing both At the war s end there were nearly 1300 people living under the Bielski s protection Children were born and those who were elderly were buried there Romance in a fashion took place one Bielski brother was uite the ladies man There were even children conceived during their time in the communityHere are some links about them Compassion The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers Education Video by Brendon Rennert on youtube another Bielski Brother account that I thoroughly enjoyed sounds so bizarre and counter intuitive to say I didn t want the book to end There were countless details I wanted to know What happened to those who endured this intense situation Where are they now of course that uestion was meaningful a few decades ago when this book was published The video answers some of my uestions but I wish there were focus on these heroic men and their community I have read that similar groups formed elsewhere but so much of today s books give accounts of women spies which I have read extensively or about actual battle s that were waged which are vital to understanding how the Reich was toppled This is about having a comprehensive understanding about how real people design alternative options when their community no longer exists It was a powerful read

Describing an extraordinary hidden forest community of 1200 Jews who were led by peasant tur. I decided to read Defiance because last year I saw the film version of it and I enjoyed the film even though it was sad and found the film very interesting So I finally brought a copy of the book and read it I have decided to put this book into the A book based on a true story category on the bingo board as this book is based on a true story This book wasn t uite what I had expected it to be I expected it to be of a story about what had happened in The Bielski otraid and the experiences of the Jewish people in it This book was about what happened in The Bielski otraid and the experiences of the Jewish people in it but it was written in facts and had extracts from the interviews that the author had had with the survivors of the Bielski otraid these facts an interviews told the story This book was not what I had expected but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this book despite the horrific stories it told I found this category interesting I liked this category and I will continue to read that will fit into this category in the future One of my favourite uotes from this book is Whatever feelings of revenge he had these took a back seat to save lives Refusing to become a victim rejecting the role of avenger Tuvia Bielski concentrated on gathering Jewish Fugitives and protecting their lives Tuvia was the commander of the Bielski otraid This is one of my favourite uotes because I think it shows what a good leader Tuvia was Tuvia was in a position where he could refuse to take on Jewish people who he didn t like or who he thought would become a burden but he didn t He would take on any Jewish people it didn t matter if they were old sick or if he didn t get along with them he wanted to save the lives of Jewish people any Jewish peopleFrom this book I learnt that sometimes it isn t worth holding a grudge or bothering to try and get revenge The Nazis had done horrific things to Jewish people but they didn t use that as an excuse to go and kill and do horrific things back to the Nazis they just moved on and got on with their livesThis book was set is Belorussia I thought this was an interesting setting because I did not know much about Belorussia which I believe is also known as Belarus I learnt a bit about the towns and the kinds of people who live there
