Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein will direct a film about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Weinstein, who heads Miramax Films in New York, told the New York Post that he plans to direct a feature film about the true story of 120 Jewish resistance fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto who battled the Nazis from a bunker underneath 18 Mila Street. Mordechai Anielewicz led the fighters, who battled the Nazis for some three weeks before many were killed or committed suicide.
