Abstract

Based on a true story, Defiance traces the evolution of the "Bielski Partisans," the largest and most successful Jewish resistance during World War II. The three Bielski brothers escape into the Naliboki Forest in Belarus after the Nazi Einsatzgruppen (special forces) sweep through Eastern Europe. The brothers create a large, self-sustaining, and self-governing community of 1,200 Jewish refuges and organize a guerilla force to fight the Nazis.
