Praise
"Cohen is a gifted writer with a special talent for rendering mood and atmosphere, and this is a tremendous story, but he fails to explore it in all of its complexity. Yes, the partisans of Vilna were heroes, but Cohen turns them into superheroes, which only detracts from the courage of their acts."
From the Publisher
Annotation This World War II history tells the story of Abba Kovner and his band of Jewish guerrillas who bravely led a successful resistance against the Nazis, fighting in the forests and in the towns of Lithuania. Kovner and many of his associates later emigrated to Israel and helped form the Haganah.
Editors Note Rich Cohen, author of the acclaimed Tough Jews, again narrates a little-known episode of Jewish history, this time altering what we thought we knew about the Holocaust.Abba Kovner, Vitka Kempner, Ruzka Korczak-comrades, lovers, friends. In the Lithuanian ghetto of Vilna, they were the heart of a breathtakingly courageous underground movement, and when the ghetto was liquidated, they fled to the forests and joined other partisans in continued sabotage and resistance. Riveting, poignant and uplifting, The Avengers is a powerful exploration of resistance and revenge, of courage and dedication, and an inside look at some of the intrepid individuals who fought against the Holocaust and the nazi occupation of Europe.
