Defiance

Loading...
The deep forests of Poland and Belarus are the domain of the occupying Germans during World War II. The three Bielski brothers go into the forests to undertake the impossible task of foraging for food, weapons and survival, not just for themselves but for a large mass of Polish Jews fleeing from the German war machine. The brothers, living with the fear of discovery, must contend with neighboring Soviet partisans and deciding whom to trust. They take on the responsibility of guardians and motivate hundreds of women, men, children and elderly to join their fight against the Nazi regime while hiding in makeshift homes in the dark, cold, unforgiving forest. At the same time, the brothers turn a band of war defectors into powerful freedom fighters. Based on true events.

Chernobyl Heart

Loading...
The Chernobyl disaster began on April 26, 1986--and continues even now, given its profound effect on the region. With the debate over alternative energy sources as contentious as ever, this Academy Award-winning program offers a wealth of issues to consider; its reexamination of what happened at the Ukranian reactor and its investigation into the dark side of nuclear power parallel the questions many Americans have regarding the storage of radioactive material and the overall safety of the nuclear industry. The video also highlights international medical programs created to battle the insidious residual effects of the Chernobyl tragedy.
