A realistic recreation of the doomed Warsaw Ghetto Upring
11 April 2001 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

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.
