ne of the most remarkable
dramas of World War II has
gone untold —
until now. It's the
true story of how three Jewish
brothers defied the Nazis,
built a village in a European
forest and saved 1,200 Jews
— approximately the same
number that Oskar Schindler,
of Schindler's List fame, is
credited with saving.
While Schindler received all
of the publicity, in a book
and a movie, the brothers'
incredible story somehow fell through
the cracks of history. And it took a
Catholic Irishman from New York to
discover the tale almost. 60 years later
while conducting a random search on
the Internet.
Peter Duffy, 34, of New York City,
was an altar boy while growing up in
his native Syracuse, N.Y., but he had
several Jewish friends and enjoyed
attending their b'nai mitzvah. So the
phrase "Forest Jews" naturally gained
his interest while surfing the Internet
almost three years ago.

about 100 interviews with people
around the world, he produced his
first book, The Bielski Brothers
(HarperCollins; $25.95), a quick-read,
275-page narrative published in July.
He even quotes the
Talmud: "Whoever saves
one life saves the world
entire," an appropriate
description of what the
Bielski family did for Jewry
during World War II.
"I found it to be an amaz-
ing story of bravery and
ingenuity against incredible
odds, and a long-forgotten
piece of history that I felt
should be added to the sto-
ries about Jews and their acts of resist-
ance during the Holocaust," explained
Duffy from his Manhattan office.
"During my recent book signings,
I've been fortunate enough to meet
many Holocaust survivors who said
they can really relate to the story."
The Bielskis were three of 11 surviv-
ing children of a miller and his wife,
who lived in the mostly non-Jewish
area outside of the city of Novogrudek
in the Belorussian forest.
A region long steeped in anti-
Semitism, its Jews had endured dis-
crimination and persecution under
