The Avengers: A Jewish War Story
Author: Rich Cohen
Abba Kovner, Vitka Kempner, and Ruzka Korczak were comrades, lovers, and friends. In the Lithuanian ghetto of Vilna, they were the heart of a courageous underground movement, and when the ghetto was liquidated, they fled to the forests and joined other partisans in continued sabotage and resistance. The Avengers is an exploration of resistance and revenge, of courage and dedication. It’s also an inside look at some of the intrepid individuals who fought against the Holocaust and the Nazi occupation of Europe.
