Summary"Homemade bombs rain from rooftops onto the street. Rifle fire erupts from windows. Jewish men and women of Warsaw, Poland, are fighting back against their oppressors. History's largest campaign of armed Jewish resistance to Nazi tyranny during World War II is in its full fury. Directed in brisk, semi-documentary style by Jon Avnet, Uprising is a remarkable story... a poignant and powerful saga of undaunted heroism." —Distributor
