Jewish Units in the Soviet Partisan Movement - Selected Documents
This section begins with a preface briefly discussing two Jewish partisan units in Belarus, which were combined with family camps, that of the Bielski brothers and of Shalom Zorin (pp. 397–399). A history of Bielski’s unit was recorded for the Soviet command by Tuvia Bielski in 1944 (pp. 400–411). A report on the activities of Zorin’s unit compiled for the same purpose in 1944 by the unit’s commissar, Feigelman, as well as brief battle dispatches of this unit, was sent to the secretary of the Ivenets party committee (pp. 412–418). Finally, two letters are presented that were written in 1941 and 1944 by Isaac Bruk, a Jewish military pilot in the Soviet air force, who was captured by the Germans in 1941 and managed to survive (pp. 419–423).
