Defiance The Bielski Partisans review ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Describing an extraordinary hidden forest community of 1200 Jews who were led by peasant tur. 1611 Finally finished This was a difficult book to read It was too dense to really hold my attention and all those footnotes broke up the flow of the reading making it even harder I had trouble taking in the information I was reading Whenever I took a break in order to sleep or because other books took precedence due to library due dates or simple lack of interest I found that when I went back to the book I couldn t remember what had been happening except in the vaguest way WWII was happening the Nazis were massacring Jews and confining them to ghettos the Bielskis were saving Jews and hiding them in the forest Other than those basic facts facts which I knew already from other sources I don t feel like I learned all that much about what the Bielskis did for those they saved What stuck in my head most was the revelation that Tuvia the oldest brother played by Daniel Craig in the movie pictured on the front cover of the edition I read wasn t perfect not that that s all that much of a revelation as real heroes are never perfect He had some serious faults that his wife had to turn a blind eye to in order to stay with him faults that most of us these days couldn t imagine putting up with I certainly wouldn t but maybe in a situation like what the Bielski otriad suffered through I would make a different decision The information was interesting it s just a shame Tec couldn t have portrayed it in a way that made her book compelling

Defiance The Bielski Partisans review ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB The author a holocaust survivor tells of the largest armed rescue of Jews by Jews during WWII. Defiance just made it to the NY Times paperback best seller list even tho it came out than 15 years ago The reason for its popularity now of course is that the film has been released and has created interest in the story and in Nechama Tec s book That s why I read it After seeing the film I wanted to know about the Bielski brotherspartisans and what really happened in the forest As I suspected the film does not do justice to the book or even important to what actually happened But give the movie credit for stirring interest in these eventsTec s portrayal is of a group of Jews The Bielksi Partisans in Belorussiain WWII who lived in the forest seeking to escape the German slaughters The story is truly inspiring and shows a different view than the one most often portrayed of helpless Jewish victims unable unwilling to fight the terrors of the Third ReichTec a scholar and a Holocaust survivor herself focuses on Tuvia Bielski an unlikely leader who eventually leads 1200 Jews to safety The book tells the story of this truly amazing individual and describes how these Jews survived in the forest how this group of refugees formed a community how they lived and how and why they were the most successful and largest group of partisans to make it to safetyIt s an inspiring story unevenly written and told and one that stillleft me wanting to know than Tec was able to portray But this story deserves to be heard Tuvia Bielski and his brothers deserve a prominent place in Jewish history than they have received Tuvia was never truly recognized for his heroic efforts other than by those he saved and the remainder of his life in Israel and the US was apparently sad and without the honors that should have been bestowed upon him Hopefully this story and Tuvia and his brothers will now receive the recognition they deserve
