Oh, Warsaw.

You indomitable city, you.

85% of Warsaw was destroyed in World War Two. I went on a mission to find the 15% that survived.

The happenings in this city during those years are nothing short of epic tragedy infused with unbelievable courage.

A lot of people don’t know there were two separate uprisings against the Germans. The Jews and the non-Jewish Poles each staged a major uprising.

These people went through hell.

Below are images of the remaining sections of the ghetto, cityscapes rising above the ghosts of smoldering ruins, memorials, and the textures that intrigue me so.

My photos do not do this phoenix of all phoenixes justice.
