I think it's safe to say that these allegations of (bielski) "war crimes" will never be proven.
It's rather ironic but in the interview on CNN they speak of the actions proudly. And in this interview,
Zwick is a former journalist and a multi-threat, with long credits as director, movie producer and writer. He also has a remarkable record as a TV producer, most notably with "Thirtysomething," and he won an Oscar as co-producer of "Shakespeare in Love."

"But it's important to say that even if they were, to try to equate Jews participating in some attack on a village, which no doubt was in reprisal for something else, was in the context of wartime, and I'm afraid to say, understandable. " I wonder what the 10 year old boy murdered by the partisans had done to make it "understandable" . I wonder does the author agree that alleged Polish atrocities are acceptable as they could be considering "reprisals". I wonder what he thinks of the million German women raped by the Soviets. I guess they are "understandable" too. Some crimes such as stealing food are understandable and consider fair during war time BUT murder is murder regardless of your ethnicity/faith/ gender/nationality.
