Is it Daniel Craig or Vladimir Putin starring in Dafiance? I wonder...Defiance Poster
Sometimes the lessons from the past seem forgotten: ethnic cleansing occurred again in the former Yugoslavia. I wonder if some courageous people took the lead to save a few souls like the character played by Daniel Craig in Defiance did... I hope so.

Some heroes...the only surviving Bielski brother, Aron was jailed in 2007 in the United States. As of June 2008, together with his wife Henryka Bell, Aron Bielski is facing a sentence of up to 90 years imprisonment for scamming $250,000 from a 93 yr. old catholic woman survivor of the conflict that he saved. the way, the same Bielski brothers took park in the Naliboki massacre, a partisan raid on a Polish town in the area which killed more than 100 people including women and children, as well as other crimes commited by the Soviet-commanded partisans against the local non-Jewish and non-communist population were left out. However, given the fact that the film does not cover the entire war, it is likely that elements of the story have been omitted due to time constraints. Instead, Zwick made them actively fight the German military forces, even though, according to the research by the Polish government's Institute of National Remembrance, they preferred to flee the manhunt operations in order to survive rather than fight any battles against the German soldiers.
