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.

The story of retribution after the was uplifting that these men went thruout Europe searching for Gestapo and SS , and exacted appropriate punishment. Also the Haganah organized cells of these men to go thruout Europe after the war to bring survivors and children to Palestine.
They all felt that this should be seen by all high schools and everyone, as it shows1/ a side of the Holocaust that many do not know, the camps were liberated, but what happened to teh rescapees was horrendous,
2/ a side of the Jews that not everyone knows: they did fight back
3/ the group of Jews under the Israeli flags who took the war in their own hands,fighting the war against the NAzi and mostly helped escapees from the camps get to a homeland, a place where they were wanted, Palestine, now Israel.
The English did all they could to keep the Jews from reaching their homeland.
IT SHOWS AN ARMED JEWISH RESISTANCE TO THE NAZIS THAT WE ONLY SEE THROUGH THIS MOVIE.
