Paul Brickman and Jon Avnet
The Nazis invasion of Poland in the fall of 1939 sent hundreds of thousands 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.
Using radically refashioned archival footage of the Warsaw ghetto, this interview with Jon Avnet the director of Uprising talks about Marek Edelman who is an evocative memoir of his role in the rebellion that held back the Nazis for almost a month in 1943.
