Zus and Me: The “Defiance” Guy I Knew

Here’s an essay I wrote for my employee, The Jewish Week.  One of the partisans in the Nazi Jewish resitance group, the Bielskis, and subjects of the new film “Defiance,” is related to me.  Zus, played by Liev Schreiber, is my dad’s uncle. Zus and I used to eat a lot of bagels and lox together.  Read about it here, in an essay that was published in the J-Dub a couple weeks ago.
