Courage & Compassion

In 1941, the Nazis initiated their murderous campaign against the Jews of Belarus. Three brothers, Tuvia, Asael, and Zus Bielski, refused to become victims, and courageously fought back. They escaped to the forest, and began rescuing relatives, friends, and complete strangers, resulting in the rescue of more than 1,200 men, women and children. Created by the Florida Holocaust Museum, Courage & Compassion, tells this remarkable story. 

The exhibit was displayed as part of Violins of Hope, a series of exhibitions, performances, film screenings, and lectures that explore the history of music in the face of oppression. Presented by the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture. More information is available at www.violinsofhopecharlotte.com.
