Faye Schulman with her partisan friends 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.
