Event Description:

presented with the Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center

Based on the true story of a group of Jews in Belarus who successfully defied the Nazis, hid in the forest and maintained a self-contained society while losing only about 50 of their some 1,200 members. Defiance stars Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber and Jaime Bell, directed by Edward Zwick. 137 minutes, rated R.

After the film screening, Aron (Bielski) Bell will join us to answer questions and share his story. Only a preteen when the Nazis stormed his farming town in Belarus, Aron, now 89, was the youngest of the Bielski partisans who led the resistance effort and provided a safe haven for vulnerable Jews who managed to flee into the forests. The film Defiance chronicles these rescuers, the largest armed resistance of Jews by Jews during the Second World War.
