History comes alive in this moving documentary in which six of the remaining survivors of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising step in front of the camera to recall those momentous events – in which hundreds of ill-equipped Jewish fighters were able to hold off the Nazi war machine for a month.
The survivors include Kazik Rotem, Masha Gleitman, Pnina Greenspan and Aharon Carmi; Brunk Spigel from Canada; and the celebrated Marek Edelman, who chose to remain in Poland.
Their searing memories from the uprising and their understanding of the historic events in retrospect, 60 years later, is quite different and far more complex than what has been depicted in official commemorations.
