--Courage & Compassion On View in Atlanta

St. Petersburg, FL (Sept. 20, 2010) - The Florida Holocaust Museum is pleased to announce that Courage & Compassion:  The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers (an original exhibition created by the Florida Holocaust Museum) will be on view through Jan. 3, 2011 at the Breman Jewish Heritage & Holocaust Museum.  The museum is located at 1440 Spring Street NW, Atlanta, Ga.  For museum hours and other information, please call (678) 222-3700.

 

Courage & Compassion:  The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers begins with an overview of the Bielski family and Jewish life in Belarus.  It then recounts Tuvia, Asael and Zus Bielski's escape and the formation of the Bielski partisan detachment.  The exhibit outlines the rescue of thousands of Jews from the surrounding area and ghettos, the story of the longest escape tunnel ever built, the group's establishment of a small community in the forest, and their courageous acts of sabotage against the Nazis.  Because of their compassion, over 1,200 Jews survived the Holocaust.  The exhibition features text and graphic panels, personal artifacts from the Bielski partisans, and presentations of Survivor testimony.  Courage & Compassion is presented nationally by Bank of America.
