A solid network effort about heroism in a most immoral world.

Uprising, though flawed in a lot of ways, is still worth checking out if only to learn about a true-life inspirational tale.

Audience Reviews for Uprising

Very good made-for-tv mini series. Plenty of stars, thoughout. As a made-for-TV movie, this really does excel. The sheer scale of it is impressive enough, but in addition to that it is well paced, well written and well acted (with the exception of David Schwimmer who I just can't get past seeing him as Ross). I, also, learned a lot about the Jewish Polish resistance during WWII which I knew little about. Nice job!

great inspiring story about some of the few survivors of the holocaust and their struggle to survive.
