Rod Serling's sobering drama, originally shown on Playhouse 90, is re-made in this made-for-cable movie. The setting is the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943, where Jews are either carted off to Nazi death camps or left to die in the disease-ridden squalor of the streets. Armin Mueller-Stahl stars as Rabbi Heller, a father who is struggling to retain his commitment to peace in the face of the horrors he sees around him. Heller stands his moral ground while watching his daughter Rachel targeted by a German soldier and his son transformed into a hateful ex-prisoner. Director Joan Micklin Silver effectively re-creates the claustrophobic feel of the Ghetto and music group Dead Can Dance provides the emotive score.
