For decades, the world believed Jews went to their deaths like sheep to the slaughter during the Holocaust. “Resistance — They Fought Back” tells a different story. Created and codirected by Newton’s Paula S. Apsell, the ambitious and groundbreaking documentary tells the heroic tale of Jews who fought back in more than 60 armed rebellions—including six in death camps–and of thousands of Jewish partisans in forests of Europe. Through interviews with historians, survivors, and their families, the film belies a long-held myth and shines a new light on a lost chapter of history.
**Contains some graphic Holocaust imagery
Followed by a live in-person conversation with directors Paula Apsell and Kirk Wolfinger, and film subject Michael Berenbaum, moderated by BJF board president Ken Shulman.+ More... - Less...
