Definitely worth seeing
29 August 2003 | by jwsharpSee all my reviews

I saw this film over twenty years ago. Still remember the acts of sublime heroism and cowardice depicted convincingly by the cast. I didn't mind the the few historical inaccuracies, because I still felt that the film was true to the desperate situation in the Warsaw Ghetto at that time. I think that this was the first time that I saw Lisa Eichhorn. I have been a fan of her work since.
