SummaryAfter Germany invaded Poland in September 1939, the Germans decreed that all 350,000 Warsaw Jews be forcibly detained in the area known as the "Warsaw Ghetto". In fear for their lives, the Polish Jews form the Jewish Fighting Organization (JFO) to fight against this oppressive force. When the German troops march into the Ghetto, they are surprised and repulsed by the JFO fighters. Their resolve will be tested as the Nazi's promise to completely eradicate the Ghetto as a birthday present for Hitler.
