Defiance The Bielski Partisans

WWII describing an extraordinary hidden forest community of Jews who were led by peasan. 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

    There are two books about the Bielski partisan group that I know of; the other is Peter Duffy's The Bielski Brothers Both books were good but I found Tec's to be the better of the two Her writing gave a better sense of what daily life was like in the Bielski camp possibly because she herself was a hidden child Holocaust survivor Tec was al
