Dan,just google Bielski Brothers
I saw a similar program on these people several months ago - what a distasteful bunch of people they were too. Members of this band, including the Bielski's themselves, were interviewed. I recall the eldest brother was lauded by everyone in the group - he struck me as something of a foppish robber-prince.
The gist I got from their exploits was that of terrorising the local peasants into giving them food etc. With shoulders shrugged, they'd relate that if they werent given what they wanted, they'd simply kill, because they were purportedly hated anyway. The overall ambience, for those who are unfamilair with this period of history, would be that these guys were a heroic band fighting both the German and Polish oppressor.
The thing that really galls me about these shows is that they never mention some of the real Jewish heroes - those who fought and died alongside Poles amongst others. Why dont they make a show about those Jews in the AK (limited though they may be) and those numerous Polish Jews who fought in the '44 Uprising. Oh wait - that may promote reconciliation - certainly doesnt appear to be on these guys' agenda.
