In April 1943, as Nazis rounded up, and later deported or killed, about 300,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, Hitler’s henchmen were met with resistance in the form of the Warsaw Uprising, as factions of armed Jews and Polish gentiles from the Home Army banded together to strike back against their occupiers.

Now, 70 years later, a group of cinematographers have worked on archival footage from the scenes of the struggle and have enhanced them with sound, color and nimble editing to make this moment in history more accessible to contemporary viewers. The end result of their work, sponsored by the Warsaw Rising Museum, will be released soon to commemorate the anniversary of the revolt.

Take a look at the trailer in the report below from NBC:
