This movie chronicles the true story of the Bielski brothers, Russian Jews who successfully harbored 1200 Jewish refugees in the woods while fighting the Nazis for four years. This is one of the absolute best films I have seen about heroism during the Nazi occupation. This movie was nominated for an Oscar two years ago and is beautifully made. Students love watching it and it carries a PG-13 rating. Movie guide contains 30 chronologically ordered questions, follow up topics for discussion and an answer key in case you need it.
