Four Winters: A Story of Jewish Resistance and Heroism

April 22, 2023, 2:00 PM


“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.

In Julia Mintz's “stunning, heartfelt narrative of heroism and resilience” (Lincoln Center, NYJFF), the last surviving World Water II Jewish partisans tell the little-known story of their four years in the forests of Ukraine and Poland, where they organized to resist sabotage and resist Nazis and their collaborators.
