Jewish resistance during the Holocaust took many forms: spiritual resistance in the face of persecution, shared resources in a time of great deprivation, and partisan efforts like those of the Bielski Brothers, who formed the largest partisan detachment in Nazi-occupied Europe. Aron Bell (born Aron Bielski) was the youngest of four Bielski brothers who famously started a Jewish rescue movement through partisan communities hiding in the woods of German-occupied western Belorussia (now Belarus).

In this program, Aron Bell, his wife Henryka, and niece Assi Weinstein (née Bielski) will be joined by Tamara Vershitskaya, a researcher and Curator of the Jewish Resistance Museum, for a discussion of the Bielski Partisans and their enduring legacy. The conversation will be moderated by Tablet Magazine European culture correspondent Vladislav Davidzon, who was recently awarded a fellowship at the Atlantic Council for his coverage of the 2020 Belarusian protests.
