Faye Schulman (Nov. 28, 1919 — April 24, 2021) was a resistance fighter and photographer who chronicled Nazi atrocities and the partisans’ struggle in Eastern Europe during the Second World War. She was an extraordinary woman who passed away on April 24 at the age of 101. We strongly recommend reading her obituary in The New York Times, which is linked below.
Quote: “She kept a copy of the photos as evidence of the atrocity, then later joined a band of Russian guerrilla Resistance fighters. As one of the only known Jewish partisan photographers, Mrs. Schulman, thanks to her own graphic record-keeping, debunked the common narrative that most Eastern European Jews had gone quietly to their deaths.”
