Description: This story from World War II starts in the Lithuanian ghetto of Vilna, where a small band of underground Jews fights with unending cunning and courage. At the heart of this resistance are Abba Kovner, a fiery leader, and Vitka Kempner and Ruzka Korczak, the two fearless women with whom he shares his bed. When the ghetto is liquidated, these three flee to the forests and fight alongside Russian and Polish partisan groups -- dynamiting bridges, derailing trains, destroying power plants and waterworks. The war ends, but this story doesn't. It winds down a route of a harrowing plan to poison ten thousand Nazis held prisoners at Nuremburg, and it eventually arrives at Palestine, where a struggle for independence awaits this weary yet fiercely indomitable threesome.

"The Avengers" is a story like no other. It is a side of the Holocaust not often seen -- Jews who refused to be led like sheep to the slaughter. But mostly it is the story of three remarkable people able to call themselves comrades, lovers, friends. Riveting, poignant and uplifting, this story gives fresh meaning to that often overused phrase, "the triumph of the human spirit."
