The Bielski Brothers Mr. Duffy talked about his book, The Bielski Brothers: The True Story of Three Men Who Defied the Nazis, Saved 1200 Jews, and Built a Village in the Forest, published by HarperCollins. Mr. Duffy described Tuvia, Asael, and Zus Bielski who were freedom fighters in what is now present-day Belarus and who formed a secret village of Jews in the middle of a forest, surrounded by occupying Nazi forces. The fully-functioning village had horse-driven power as well as a theater group and synagogue. He showed slides of pictures from the book and answered audience members' questions. close
