Picture To Enlarge
One of the first post - World War II films to deal with the Holocaust, Border Street recreates the circumstances surrounding the doomed Warsaw Ghetto uprising, in which a small, heroic band of Jews chose to resist the Nazis rather than face deportation to Auschwitz or Treblinka. The story unfolds through eyes of four characters who live in the same building: Davidek and Jadzia are two Jewish youths who fight the Nazis as their only choice of survival, while gentiles Bronek and Wladek consider the occupation an insult to their Polish heritage. Aleksander Ford's heart-wrenching film focuses on the common goals of the Poles and Jews as they stage a valiant effort to rid themselves of the Nazi menace. Border Street is at once a compelling drama and a page out of history.

Considered to be the best post-war Polish film and winner of the Council of Ministers Award from the Venice International Film Festival.

Jeden z najlepszych polskich filmow powojennych w Polsce. Bohaterami sa mieszkancy warszawskiej kamienicy. Tragiczna, a zarazem wzruszajaca historia dzieci z jednej kamienicy, ktorych przyjazn zostaje poddana ciezkiej probie. Wybucha wojna. Ludnosc zydowska idzie na zaglade do getta. Rodzi sie bunt uwienczony zbrojnym powstaniem.
