How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

A search on the Internet for “Bielski Otriad” will result in many sites that have additional information on these heroic brothers. Here is an account of one person’s interactions with them and their camp deep in the forest: http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lida-District/visit-partisans.htm
