Four Winters

Thursday, March 26, 7:00 PM
Yiddish Book Center, Amherst

This essential documentary tells the stories of Jewish partisans who took up arms against Hitler’s war machine. Despite extraordinary odds, over 25,000 Jews bravely fought back against the Nazis and their collaborators from deep within the forests of Eastern Europe. These determined men and women, many barely in their teens, engaged in acts of sabotage, blowing up trains, burning electric stations, and attacking armed enemy headquarters. The last surviving partisans tell their stories to director Julia Mintz who shines a spotlight on their bravery through inspiring interviews, personal photographs, and rare archival footage. Four Winters is a stunning, heartfelt narrative of heroism and resilience.

Introduction and post-screening Q&A with director Julia Mintz. Dessert reception to follow.
