HMC exhibit on famed
partisans opens with
talk by granddaughter.


baron Rennert, an award-
winning independent filmmaker
and television editor, spoke at
the opening of the exhibit, "Courage and
Compassion: The Legacy of the Bielski
Brothers" on July 15 at the Holocaust
Memorial Center Zekelman Family
Campus in Farmington Hills.
Rennert recently made the documen-
tary, In Our Hands: A Personal Story of the
Bielski Partisans. She is the granddaughter
of the famed partisan Tuvia Bielski, who,
along with brothers Zus and Asael, refused
to succumb to the hopeless circumstances
of the Holocaust, took fate into their own
hands and kindled a flame of hope in the
hearts of Jews searching for sense and
meaning during one of their darkest times
in history.
The exhibit, from the Florida Holocaust
Museum and sponsored nationally by
Bank of America, details the resistance
group operating against the Nazis during
the occupation of Poland and Belarus.
Their story was made famous in the 2008
movie, Defiance.
The exhibit runs through Nov. 4.
