To Paint the Earth

Author(s): &

To Paint the Earth tells the story of the fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto who struggled to keep a sense of normalcy amidst increasingly abnormal conditions. In the end, their armed resistance, made up of a close-knit group of street fighters, held off the German Army for over a month. Though the Uprising was crushed, it sent a message that their lives would not be given lightly. For many of them, it was the fulfillment of their last hope, that they would die fighting, with dignity, rather than without a sound, and that the world would know what kind of people perished in the Warsaw Ghetto.
