Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
Tutor: Michele Mycock
Margaret Christie Studio
THE HEROIC WARSAW GHETTO UPRISING
The largest Jewish resistance in World War II took the Germans longer to suppress than it took them to conquer the whole of Poland. Moving & at times confronting; the starving, degraded yet inventive young adults & children faced impossible odds; but the Germans could not defeat them in battle. Survivors give accounts of a highly risky escape & how one Christian woman saved 2,500 children.

Visits to British & European historical sites & documents deepened interest & my discovery of a largely unknown illegitimacy in a royal dynastic line has been favourably received by two eminent historians.
