Four Winters: Jewish Women's Armed Resistance During the Holocaust
March 12, 2024, 6 pm
Embark on a journey of resilience and defiance with the St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum as we present the groundbreaking documentary, “Four Winters.” Award-winning female filmmaker Julia Mintz takes audiences beyond conventional narratives, shedding light on the untold stories of Jewish survival and resistance during World War II.
Join us for an exclusive screening that challenges prevailing myths of Jewish passivity. Through gripping accounts and archival footage, “Four Winters” unveils the courageous acts of Jews who defied the odds, escaping to the forests of Eastern Europe, Ukraine, and Belarus. There, they forged alliances and formed partisan brigades to confront the relentless advance of Nazis and their collaborators.
In honor of women’s history month, don’t miss this transformative cinematic experience that amplifies many female voices long overlooked by history. Join us at the St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum and bear witness to the indomitable spirit of survival in “Four Winters” and meet film-maker Juila Mintz in an intimate talkback post viewing.
