Defying Hitler ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2004, WGVU traveled with Joe Stevens and his son to revisit some of the places of Joe's past. Joe was part of the Polish underground. He was a hero. In the days of World War II, he was a shadow. During the course of their trip, Joe was reunited with his old friend from the underground, Tolek. Even as a friend, Tolek had not known that Joe was Jewish until years after the war. Within the resistance, to reveal his secret would have meant persecution. In the face of Nazi occupation, it would have meant death. WGVU also took Joe to revisit his childhood home - only the second time he would return there since fleeing before the war. Time cannot heal all wounds. Fortunately, time also cannot erase the heroics of those who refuse to be persecuted, and who refuse to give up
