Notes & Reviews:

Heroic Jewish resistance to German barbarity during the Holocaust was indelibly manifested in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943. Facing imminent deportation to death camps and preferring, if necessary, to die with dignity in battle, thousand of Jews rose up in armed defiance of their tormentors. Their fierce but doomed struggle - against unimaginable horrors and overwhelming odds - began during Passover. After the war, American composer Max Helfman immortalized the uprising in his dramatic choral tone poem 'Di Naye Hagode' (The New Haggada) based on the epic Jewish poem "The Shadows of the Warsaw Ghetto".
