Starting August 1, the Warsaw Rising Museum will show a 3D film titled “Miasto ruin” (“City of Ruins”), which depicts the damage wrought on the city of Warsaw during World War II.

The makers of the film used historical images to create a computer simulation of the city's wretched state in 1945. Shot as though from an airplane, the film is designed to make audiences feel as though they are flying over Warsaw’s destroyed bridges, roofless houses, and obliterated ghetto.

Jan Oldakowski, the director of the Warsaw Rising Museum, explains that the film targets the younger audience who cannot imagine the extent which Warsaw was damaged after the war.

This five-minute film was created by 40 Polish historians and specialists. It took two years to create.
