Born in Poland in 1924, Faye Schulman received her first camera from her brother when she was 13. It was that camera which ultimately saved her life, and allowed her to later document Jewish partisan activity. She is the only known Jewish partisan photographer.
Schulman's rare collection of images captures the camaraderie, horror and loss, bravery and triumph of the rag-tag, tough partisan--some Jewish, some not--who fought the Germans and their collaborators.
Pictures of Resistance: The Wartime Photography of Jewish Partisan Faye Schulman, a new traveling exhibition produced by the Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation (JPEF) and curated by Jill Vexler, Ph. D, poses probing questions about this incredible woman and the people whose images she documented.
A filmed interview with Faye discussing specific photographs has been made as a companion to the exhibition and will available for viewing on the JPEF website. A Teacher/Student Study Guide will accompany the exhibition and will also be available on the JPEF website.
This exhibit is made possible through the generous support of the Thomas and Johanna Baruch, the Epstein/Roth Foundation, the Purjes Foundation, the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture, UJA MetroWest., and Diane and Howard Wohl.
