Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

Tutor: Michele Mycock

Margaret Christie Studio


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.
