The Pianist is based upon the true story of WładysławSzpilman (Adrien Brody), a Polish pianist of Jewish ancestry who lived in the ghettos of Warsaw during World War II. While his family was sent to a concentration camp and later executed, a sympathetic Jewish police officer helpedSzpilman to escape.
For more than a year Władysławlived with a non-Jewish family, but was eventually forced to reside in an abandoned dental hospital; he scavenged for food amongst the area's abandoned homes, and was eventually discovered by a Nazi defense captain who admired the young man's musical prowess.
