70 years ago when faced with starvation and disease and upon receiving word that they would be deported to concentration camps, a group of young Jews staged an armed insurgency in the Warsaw Ghetto. The film will be followed by a discussion with David Kaufman, director, and Mindy Spiegel, daughter of Baruch Spiegel, recently deceased Montrealer and hero of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
