The Warsaw ghetto uprising began in the early morning hours of Erev Peysach, April 19, 1943.

Based on a true story that took place on April 19, 1943, a small group of surviving Jews gather to celebrate Passover as gunfire and mortars rain down around them.

Lori Leifer, pictured at right, is the lead character in a marvelous ensemble cast. Other NYR colleagues include David Mandelbaum, Eli Rosen, Malky Goldman, Shmuly Blesofsky, Melissa Weisz, and Esther Hafner.
