THE DEFIANT gets its own documentary (set to first air on Jewish Life TV/JLTV - Friday, January 1, 2021 at 8:00pm ET/PT)

Posted: 2021/01/01

Garden City Park, NY: At a time when both anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial are again on the rise, Square One is proud to announce that a new documentary has been made based on its acclaimed memoir The Defiant: A True Story of Escape, Survival & Resistance by Holocaust survivor Shalom Yoran.

The documentary, set to first air Friday January 1 2021 at 8:00pm ET/PT on the Jewish Life TV (JLTV) network, is based on Yoran's book and tells the personal and moving story of the author's World War II experiences and how Shalom (after his parents were killed) refused to yield to the Nazis and chose to become a Jewish resistance fighter. The book further chronicles the bravery of a group of men and women who carried on a forest war, using antiquated guns and living on instinct. From the brutal behavior of Polish peasants to direct confrontations with storm troopers, The Defiant sheds light on events that few have known about in this country.

This documentary will be shown another three times this year, not counting additional airings during JLTV fund drives similar in nature to those televised by the PBS network. It will also air:

* April 25, 2021 (Sunday - at 3:00pm ET)

* August 13, 2021 (Friday - at 8:00pm ET / PT)

* November 13, 2021 (Saturday - at 8:00pm ET / PT)
