Beno and Roza fell in love in the 1930s and were married in 1946. In between, the vast majority of Macedonia’s Jews–more than 7,400–were deported to Treblinka. Not one returned alive. Beno and Roza, and several of their teenage friends, joined the partisans, grabbed rifles and fought back. When the war ended in 1945, Beno was 24-years-old. He was also a general. This story takes us all the way to 2011–through the death of Tito, the break-up of Yugoslavia, and the opening of the largest Holocaust Museum in southern Europe.
