Deep within the walls of the Warsaw Ghetto, a small group of brave Polish Jews attempts to defy the odds by rising up and resisting deportation to the feared Nazi concentration camps of Auschwitz and Treblinka. One of the first cinematic portrayals of the Holocaust after World War II, Aleksander Ford's captivating 1949 film realistically re-creates the resistors' courageous effort and plight for survival.
