Interesting Survival Story
#1
I came across the video the other day. Most of the survival stuff are things I've seen before, but on and off they talk about this group of Russian partisan jews who escaped the Nazi death camps by running to the forest and starting of community of 1000+ members living off the land in the Belarus wilderness. Pretty interesting the things they did and the ability to support that many people lacking most modern techniques with so little time to prepare.

This story was made into a movie released in 2008, Defiance, starring Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber. The movie didn't necessarily show how large the group was, but it was mentioned in the closing credits.

Wow! I'll have to grab the book. I've read a ton about WWII but haven't come across these guys.

I love the book/movie "Escape from Sobibor"...not so much survival there, but very cunning planning in order to escape.
