Saratoga Jewish Community Arts Hosts Zoom Discussion of “The Bielski Brothers: Jerusalem in the Woods”

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Jewish Community Arts presents a zoom discussion at 7 p.m. on Oct. 13 of “The Bielski Brothers: Jerusalem in the Woods,” a documentary by filmmaker Sharon Rennert, granddaughter of one brother, Tuvia Bielski.

There are several films and books about Jewish partisans in World War II, new ones come out every few years, and at least one commercial film (Defiance} addresses the story of the Bielski Brothers. This production is distinct, as it is a historical film told by the third generation of the Bielskis from an exceptionally poignant and intimate perspective that entertains as well as enlightens. 

“The Bielski Brothers: Jerusalem in the Woods,” produced for the History Channel, can be seen on a number of streaming services with subscriptions and in some library services.
