The Wall is the story of the Warsaw uprising in 1943 against the Nazis. It is a celebration of the outstanding instance of Jewish resistance to the Germans. A dramatic account of how that resistance grew against frightful odds among people who were like people everywhere; selfish, greedy, fearful, cruel, and narrow. People kept on striving for security for themselves, unable to believe that physical resistance was possible or even necessary.
