The sea of rubble which Warsaw was reduced to during World War II has been vividly reconstructed in a 3D film. It aims to bring home to a young generation the scale of wartime devastation in Poland's capital.

It took 40 specialists two years to make the five-minute 3D aerial view sequence, a simulation of an imaginary flight over the city immediately after the war in 1945. The team took a helicopter flight over contemporary Warsaw to film base material. The 3D film is the first digital reconstruction of the destroyed city. It's dedicated to the city's 1944 uprising, which began on August 1st that year, against Nazi German invaders. The release of the film in Warsaw's Rising Museum is timed to mark the uprising's 66th anniversary.
