The Nazi invasion of Poland in the fall of 1939 sent hundreds of thousands of Polish Jews into a quarantined area which became known as the Warsaw Ghetto. The German troops were surprised to march into Warsaw to find such resistance by the proud Jewish population. This television mini-series dramatizes the fighting spirit of the people who were proud to fight and willing to die for their honor. Jon Avnet, director of films with a political edge (RED CORNER), is perfectly suited to the material.
