Defiance, directed by Edward Zwick, starring Daniel Craig and Liev Scrieber is based on the book:Defiance, the Bielsky Partisans written Nechama Tec. It is the true story of Jewish brothers who rescued Jews from extermination and fought the Nazis in Poland. Saving 1200 by the end of the war, these Jewish combat partisans survived in the forest for 2 years hunted by Nazis. http://www.holocaustresearchproject.org/revolt/bielski.html An extraordinary historical movie with heart wrenching drama and profound insights. Undoubtedly the finest partisan movie I've ever been priviledged to see.
