The Lives of the Partisans in the Lipiczanska Forest

Date: 
November 15, 2011
Running Time: 
90:28

 Miriam Brysk, a current Ann Arbor resident and the only child allowed into the partisans in the Lipiczanska forest during WWII, will speak on The Lives of the Partisans in the Lipiczanska Forest. Several of her paintings of Holocaust art will be on display.

In December 1942, Russian partisans rescued Miriam’s family from the ghetto and brought them to the Lipiczanska forest. In early 1943, a partisan hospital was established in a remote part of the forest, staffed by Jewish doctors and nurses, with Miram’s father as chief of staff. They were liberated in the summer of 1944.
