    On April 19, 1993, thousands of Jews from all over the world gathered in Warsaw to observe the 50th anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising, one of the few truly heroic events for Jews during World War II. Many were survivors of the ghetto, returning for the first time since the war. This documentary follows three families as they return to Warsaw, revisit memorable sites from their past, attempt to come to terms with this horrific experience, and to pass on their knowledge and experience to their children.
