Photo exhibit offers rare look at hidden heroism in World War II

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Defiance gets a very special face in the University of Michigan Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery’s “Pictures of Resistance: The Wartime Photographs of Faye Schulman.”

25 black-and-white photographs taken in the early 1940s by Polish partisan Faye Schulman, “Pictures of Resistance” is an astoundingly brave portrait in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Schulman’s work—the only photographs to emerge from this underreported theater of World War II—is graphic and confessional, as well as a firsthand look at what life was like in Eastern Europe during this mid-20th century period of infamous barbarity.
