In honor of them, and of our new IDF Paratrooper, I would like to share a short video. Thank you all for your service to our country.
The following introduction is from my friend and fellow blogger, Devra, who writes several blogs under the nickname Ye'he Sh'mey Raba Mevorach.
If you haven't heard of the movie, Defiance, look it up and see it. Amazing true story of two brothers, the Bielskis. After the Nazis murder their parents and one brother they become partisans and, incidentally, save about 1200 Jews from the Nazis. The grandson of one of the Bielski brothers is now a chayal boded. This clip is an interview with him.Defiance is an awesome flick.
