Michael Bart: The Partisans of Vilna

The Holocaust Living History Workshop presents:

Michael Bart: The Partisans of Vilna

Until Our Last Breath

To honor this year’s Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Ha-Shoah), Michael Bart shares the incredible story of his parents Zenia Lewinson and Leizer Bart who were both members of the Lithuanian partisan group “The Avengers.” Under the leadership of the Zionist Abba Kovner, they vowed to resist the Nazis “until our last breath” – the title of Bart’s award-winning book about the Vilna partisans. At this special event Bart relates the struggle of his parents and talks about his own ten-year-long journey to recover their history.
