Full movie description "In Our Own Hands":The final weeks of World War II. His Majesty's Jewish Brigade - the only all-Jewish fighting unit in the war - goes into combat against the hated Nazis...and comes away victorious. It is after the war, though, that the real story of the Brigade begins. Amidst the chaos of post-war Europe, and under the noses of the occupying Allied armies, the young Jewish soldiers mastermind one clandestine operation after the next: forming secret vengeance squads to assassinate Nazi officers in hiding...engineering the rescue and illegal movement of Holocaust survivors to Palestine. Later, in 1948, Brigade veterans help organize and lead the fledgling Israel Defense Forces in their new country's War of Independence. From the trenches of Northern Italy to the refugee camps of war-torn Europe, In our Own Hands unravels the thrilling tale of young Jewish soldiers who carried the weight of a people on their shoulders.
Reviews of the In Our Own HandsI am young enough that I wasn't born until after WWII -- however I have seen dozens, if not tens of dozens, of hours of World War two film footage, in the numerous documentaries that have been on the History Channel, etc.
This film just blew me away with an inspiring true story that seems to be little known today amongst younger Jewish people, and perhaps the world at large.
The film tells "The Hidden Story of the Jewish Brigade", some 5,500 Palestinian Jews who prevailed upon Winston Churchill to let them fight the Nazis in their own Jewish unit during the war. When the war ended, they defied their British commanders and (secretly) did their utmost to help Jewish refugees and survivors by secretly transporting them to Palestine.
The story is told by juxtaposing present day interviews of former members of the Jewish Brigade, with an incredible amount of documentary footage that has probably rarely been seen before -- at least not all in such a cohesively presented and edited form.
In the end the story is as amazing and exciting as some of the wartime propaganda films -- except that this is a true story of young everyday men who did exceptionally heroic deeds. I saw the film at a UCLA documentary screening, and just ordered the video off of the "Official Site" (found on the IMDB listing page). This is one film I want to see again, and show to friends and family. It is truly inspirational.
