Opening Preview of Pictures of Resistance

The lives of partisans depended on their ability to remain unseen, undocumented and unidentifiable. But one fighter, Faye Schulman, had a camera. The only known Jewish partisan to capture the World War II experience on film, Schulman's rare collection of images captures the camaraderie, horror, and triumph of the partisans who fought the Nazis.
