The Gainesville Anti-Fascist Committee presents a screening of “Defiance,” Hollywood’s retelling of the true story of the Jewish Bielski Partisans of Belarus (actual photo of original group, above).

Fleeing the genocidal, mass-murdering Nazi Einsatzgruppen, four Jewish brothers take refuge in the Naliboki Forest in Belarus. They join with other survivors to found a Jewish refugee community that eventually numbers 1,200 souls, engages in guerrilla warfare against the Nazis, and ultimately ensures its own survival, against unimaginable odds.
