A survivor of the Warsaw ghetto himself, and a man whose fame has been inexorably linked to the violent murder of his wife, Sharon Tate, and to charges of statutory rape in the USA, Polanski's greatest works have all been imbued with the pervasiveness of violence and fear.
Szpilman becomes witness to increasingly terrible events: an old man hungrily licks spilt soup from a gutter, there are indiscriminate shootings, and finally, in a scene that recalls the paranoid hallucinatory world of The Tenant, Szpilman's family watches Nazi soldiers drop a man in a wheelchair out of the apartment window opposite.

Before the outbreak of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (the planning of which only started after the extermination of the majority of Jews in Warsaw), the Jewish underground killed, with perfect justification, every Jewish collaborator they could find.
Or should Canada memorialize the Holocaust which Jerzy Kosinski survived in comfort, protected by the very Poles whom he later calumniated to promote his career as a Holocaust survivor?
Nearly all the work of administration, and later the work of transporting hundreds of thousands of Jews to their deaths, was carried out by Jewish collaborators.

A childhood survivor of Nazi-occupied Poland, Polanski was uniquely suited to tell the story of Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Polish Jew and concert pianist (played by Adrien Brody) who witnessed the Nazi invasion of Warsaw, miraculously eluded the Nazi death camps, and survived throughout World War II by hiding among the ruins of the Warsaw ghetto.
Unlike any previous dramatization of the Nazi holocaust, The Pianist steadfastly maintains its protagonist's singular point of view, allowing Polanski to create an intimate odyssey on an epic wartime scale, drawing a direct parallel between Szpilman's tenacious, primitive existence and the wholesale destruction of the city he refuses to abandon.
"The Pianist" is the agonizing story of Polish pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman's survival of the Nazi's destruction of Polish Jewry.
