A realistic recreation of the doomed Warsaw Ghetto Upring
Directed by Alexander Ford `Ulica Granicza' (Border Street) is a recreation of the doomed Warsaw Ghetto uprising in which a small but heroic band of Jews, herded into a ghetto by German occupation forces, chose to resist the Nazis rather than to face deportation to Auschwitz or Treblinka.
`Ulica Granicza' was a prize winner at the 1948 Venice Film Festival.
