Storyboard Text

  • Tuvia Bielski was the second eldest child to David and Beyle Bielski. He was raised into a simple peasant life in Belarus. It impacted him in his humble nature. As he got older, he said that he "would rather save one old Jewish woman, than kill ten German soldiers."
  • At 21 years old, Tuvia was "ready to escape, eager to discover something of the world beyond the little village where he was born." Drafted into the Polish Army and assigned to Warsaw, Tuvia served as a member of the 30th Infantry Battalion. After being promoted to training soldiers, I believe he picked up leadship skills. Which helped him lead.
  • 2 years after Tuvia left the army, he settled down with Rivke, his new wife. Her family ran a large store, so Tuvia was suddenly a prominent businessman. He developed an easy charisma, a curious mind, and a sophistication that belied his beginnings. That helped him in the sense that he was easily likeable and trusted, which are great qualities for a leader.
  • As the Germans started to imprison and slaughter more and more Jews, Tuvia and his brothers took a few under their wings and started a camp. Tuvia natually became the leader and, as the number of Jews started to rise, so did weariness in Tuvia's leadership skills.
  • A few times, Tuvia and the Jews were caught, or almost caught, and had to flee quickly. I believe his quick thinking under pressure is a great quality for a leader
  • Slowly, the Germans lost track of the Jews and they were able to set up a permanent camp. After the war had ended, Germans were wandering around to kill any remaining Jews, but it was they who were killed. Tuvia and Zus moved from place to place, but eventually settled in Holon. After joining the military once again, Tuvia and his family moved to New York. He was buried in Israel a year after he passed in 1987.
