The hanging of 17-year-old Masha Bruskina and of another partisan in Minsk in October 1941. Jewish partisan groups formed in the summer of 1941, but decided not to fight inside the Minsk ghetto in order not to endanger the population further. Jewish partisan groups from Minsk helped form the partisan movement in Belorussia and made up the nucleus of the Stalin and the Narodny Mstitel Brigades.
