“All I owned was a rifle, a leopard coat and my camera,” says Faye Schulman, whose clandestine photographs of Jewish partisans living in the forests documented their efforts to disrupt the Nazi killing machine by blowing up bridges, derailing trains, and smuggling Jews. The image of Schulman with an ammunition belt slung over her fashionable shoulder is one of many stunning archival images in this historically important documentary. Against extraordinary odds, over 25,000 Jewish partisans escaped Nazi slaughter and fought back against Hitler’s soldiers and their collaborators from deep within WWII’s primeval forests. In this award-winning film, some of the last surviving partisans tell their story, from young innocents facing down a ruthless enemy, cold, hunger, and fear, to becoming courageous resistance fighters with great determination, altruism, and resourcefulness. As fierce and skilled soldiers, they joined together and formed partisan brigades. Shattering the myth of Jewish passivity, FOUR WINTERS reveals a truthful, inspiring and riveting narrative of heroism and resilience.
