Look at the dozens of interviewees in ”Partisans of Vilna,” which opens today at the 57th Street Playhouse, and you’ll know you are watching heroes. Their courage is visible and unmistakable as they let loose the flood of memories that is preserved here. This Holocaust documentary, unlike most others, concentrates on resistance as it describes the means by which the Jewish community of Vilna, Lithuania, once nearly 60,000 strong, was decimated. It chronicles and examines the extraordinary efforts of the few who survived.
