Description
Over forty different holocaust survivors are interviewed in this informative documentary about resistance fighters in Vilna (or Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania). Supplemented by archival footage that visually expands the testimony of the survivors, their story comes alive as they recount how they formed a commando unit to go on the offensive against the Nazi army (through sabotage). Some of the misguided aspects of the resistance's hard-and-fast rules are also brought to the fore. One survivor notes how his mother came to one operation asking how she could help, and even though she was also risking her life in doing that -- she was turned away because this was not accepted procedure. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
