Shattering the myth of Jewish passivity, these last surviving partisans tell their stories of resistance in FOUR WINTERS, revealing a stunning narrative of heroism and resilience.

The Janos Ceska Art of Resistance Honor
Janos (Jan) was born into a Jewish family Hungary. When the Nazis began to occupy Jan’s country, he joined an early resistance movement which distributed pamphlets. At 18 years old, Jan was caught and jailed for nearly a year. Upon his release, Jan joined a group of Jewish Freedom fighters who occupied the forests of Yugoslavia. Jan lost his life providing cover to his comrades, who managed to escape, from approaching Nazis.
The Janos Ceska Art of Resistance Honor was established to recognize the commitments and contributions of remarkable individuals using resistance to promote peace and resilience in communities experiencing conflict.
