They held the German army off for twenty-seven days, longer than France or Poland. They were young people with dreams, romances, passions, ambitions and a zest for life. They were innocent victims of unimaginable circumstances. This staged reading with music is a moving tribute to the young heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
