The Defiant: The Holocaust Memoirs of Shalom Yoran (cc) - Level 1

Defiant, The: Holocaust Memoirs of Shalom Yoran (cc) - Lev 1

"Recommended. Based on Shalom Yoran's memoirs, 'The Defiant,' this production aims the camera at Yoran and his remembrances of the Holocaust. While the program alternates shots between archival footage and photographs, eyewitness testimony comprises the heart and substance of the story. Yoran's pathos, courage, and strength compel the viewer to listen to his heart rendering autobiography; we are riveted to his eyes, quiet demeanor, facial expressions, and the manner in which he recounts the drama, horror, trauma, and bittersweet victory of his ordeal through the Nazi genocide." -EMRO Review
"I think people are generally surprised there were in fact a large number of Jewish men and women who took up arms against the Nazis," says Dr. David Marwell, Director of the Museum of Jewish Heritage, as he introduces Shalom Yoran, who, after his parents were killed, refused to yield to the German onslaught, and instead chose to become a Jewish resistance fighter. Based on the acclaimed book, The Defiant, written by Shalom, this documentary is the personal re-telling of the author's Holocaust memoirs, a true story of survival and courage in the darkest days of World War II. Filled with rare archival footage generously provided by the Ghetto Fighter's House in Israel, the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NY, the U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, DC, this is the amazing and moving story of a handful of courageous men and women who fought against incredible odds, who truly were "the defiant." Produced by Chip Taylor. 06/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned SCA 52 min.
