“All I owned was my camera, leopard coat, rifle and a grenade in case I’m captured…the pillow was the rifle, the walls were the trees, and the sky was the roof,” says Faye Schulman, one of over 25,000 Jewish partisans, who, against extraordinary odds, fought back against the Nazis and their collaborators from deep within the forests of WWII’s Eastern Europe, Ukraine, and Belarus. Torn from their families by the ravages of Hitler’s armies, young men and women, many barely in their teens, escaped into the forests, banding together in partisan brigades, transforming from young innocents raised in closely knit families to courageous resistance fighters. Shattering the myth of Jewish passivity, some of the last surviving partisans share their inspiring stories of resistance in Four Winters, revealing a heartfelt narrative of heroism, determination, and resilience.
