After studying at the Lon don Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in the late 1950s, he knocked around Europe playing small roles (usually creepy types) in horror films and thrillers; he got a career boost as one of the second- tier Army misfits in the U.S./U.K. coproduction The Dirty Dozen (1967).
It was in a radically different war movie that he stunned American audiences: Robert Altman's groundbreaking MASH (1970), in which he originated the role of iconoclastic surgeon Hawkeye Pierce.
Immediately catapulted to stardom, the actor mixed mainstream successes with risky, sometimes politically volatile ventures; he costarred with Jane Fonda not only in the popular thriller Klute (1971), but also in the incendiary anti-Vietnam war film F.T.A (1972, which he also coproduced, cowrote, and codirected).

While this is going on we meet a few of the main characters and get to know a bit about who they are by the way they react to the barbarisms of their captors.
A few of the most notable being Leelee Sobieski who plays Tosia Altman and is much fun to look at, Hank Azaria and David Schwimmer who play the parts of Mordecai Anielewicz and Yitzhak {Antek} Zuckerman, respectively, the two leaders of the resistance that were the most influential.
Jon Voight does a nifty job of playing the slug-like nazi leader that's in charge of the "cleansing" and Donald Sutherland plays the somewhat useless head of the Jewish prisoners.

She plays Tosia Altman, a woman who joins the Jewish resistance in Poland's Warsaw Ghetto after her family is deported to a Nazi death camp in 1942.
Are we supposed to zero in on Azaria's Anielewicz and his romance with fellow freedom fighter Mira (Pitch Black's Rahda Mitchell)?
Or the attraction of Sobieski's Altman to another JFO member?

 The Leelee Sobieski Messageboard -> Leelee,great talented actress
I was greatly moved by Leelee as Tosia Altman.
The thing that made it intense for me was having no idea what was going to happen and fearing the worst - abuse, torture, death.
(I did not know anything about Tosia Altman or what happened to her when I watched the film.) I thought the (near-)nudity worked very well and underscored the cruelty of the guard and the vulnerability of the girl.

Twenty-three-year-old teacher-turned-guerrilla Mordechai Anielewicz (Hank Azaria) rallies like-minded men and women to the cause even before the mass deportations to Treblinka begin in 1942, and keeps the spirit of resistance alive to the bitter end.
Among the fighters are Anielewicz's girlfriend, Mira (Radha Mitchell); fellow teacher Yitzhak Zuckerman (David Schwimmer, of TV's Friends); Tosia Altman (Leelee Sobieski), made fearless by the loss of her family; reluctant hero Simha "Kazik" Rotem (Stephen Moyer); one-time ghetto policeman Calel Wasser (Andy Nyman); and doctor Marek Edelman (John Ales).
The real-life Edelman served as an advisor, and the film was shot in Bratislava, Slovakia.

According to the film’s tagline, "They did the one thing the Nazis never expected.

While it's the only miniseries airing during a November sweeps period that is notably light on big productions and stunt scheduling, "Uprising" will nevertheless face some tough competition Sunday; it runs opposite the Emmy awards on CBS and possibly, on the East Coast, Game 7 of the World Series on Fox.
Top billing is given to fast-rising 19-year-old Leelee Sobieski, heralded for performances in several recent TV and theatrical films, including last season's "Joan of Arc" and the current "My First Mister," but she plays a supporting fictional character, Tosia Altman.
Writers Paul Brickman and Jon Avnet (who also directed) based their script on several historical sources, including "A Surplus of Memory," a book by Yitzak Zuckerman, the rebellion leader played by Schwimmer.

The point of "Uprising" is not only that for the first time somebody stood up against German occupation, but that some of the fighters did indeed survive.
Mordechai Anielewicz (Hank Azaria), Yitzhak Zuckerman (David Schwimmer), Tosia Altman (Leelee Sobieski), and many others depicted in "Uprising" are historic figures.
Azaria and Schwimmer obviously stand out, not because of the roles they play in the narrative but also because the actors are going to great pains to remind fans they are not just comic actors.

 dOc DVD Review: Uprising (2001)
First is Mordecai Anielewicz (Azaria), the founder of the Jewish Fighting Organization, is a schoolteacher who hopes to flee to Palestine and live a free life.
He is joined by Yitzhak Zuckerman (Schwimmer) and Tosia Altman (Sobieski), each of whom have different reasons for wanting out of the ghetto; he, to continue to teach and she, to live where she can tend to her ailing father.
Then there is Adam Czerniakow (Sutherland), the leader of the Jewish Counsel that oversees the ghetto as appointed by the Nazis, who refuses to support the resistance, which ultimately leads to the taking of his own life.

These people know they're going to die, they know they have nothing to lose, they want to go out fighting.
   Sobieski plays Tosia Altman, a Jew who can pass as Aryan, who sneaks outside the ghetto walls and brings back weapons.
It's the most subtle role in the film, unfortunately, as she watches her family taken off to die and turns into something of a ghost herself.

The members of the Command were: Bresler, Cukierman, Zivia Lubetkin, Mordecai Tenenbaum and Josef Kaplan.
A delegation was sent to the Aryan side [i.e., outside the ghetto], to the Poles: Tosia Altman, Plotnicka, Leah Perlstein and Arie-Jurek Wilner, in order to make contact with the Polish Underground and to obtain weapons for the ghetto.
The fighting organization had been set up, but all the weapons there were in the ghetto at that time consisted of just one pistol...!

It's a story of survival, courage and hope; based on the events of the Warsaw ghetto uprising, the fictional characters are based on actual personas: Mordecai Anielowicz, Tosia Altman, Yitzhak Zuckerman, and the many other prominent and not so prominent members of the Jewish underground.
Although many parts of the book are fictitious, the overall story is based on historical fact.
