“A stunning, heartfelt narrative of heroism and resilience.”

“All I owned was my camera, a leopard coat, and a grenade in case of capture...the pillow was the rifle, the walls were the trees and the sky was the roof,” says partisan Faye Schulman.

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 to courageous resistance fighters. Shattering the myth of Jewish passivity, these last surviving partisans tell their stories of resistance in FOUR WINTERS, revealing a stunning narrative of heroism and resilience.

 

“No person should succumb to brutality without putting up resistance — individually it can save one’s life, en masse it can change the course of history."

Shalom Yoran, Jewish Partisan
