rating: 5 of 5 stars
A truly great book and amazing true story! I really enjoyed this book and am glad I read it. It shows the courage of a people in a horrible situation and the story of the Bielski brothers and how they saved over 1,000 Jews during WWII in Belorussia. I can't really express words to pay tribute to there marvelous people. Here's some excerpts...
-"Tuvia was not interested in military glory. To live, to keep his people alive, to bring more Jews into the Otriad, these were his goals." (p. 109)
-"As a commander of a forest community dedicated to the preservation of life, Tuvia Bielski gave to the Jewish people many precious gifts: hopes, dreams, and their very lives." (p. 296)
