Once described as the Paris of the North, Warsaw was believed to be one of the most beautiful cities within the world until World War II. Bombed at the start of the German invasion in 1939, the town withstood a siege for which it was later awarded Polands highest military decoration for heroism, the Virtuti Militari. Deportations of the Jewish population to concentration camps led to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943 and the destruction of the Ghetto after a month of combat. A general Warsaw Uprising between August and October 1944 led to even greater devastation and systematic razing by the Germans in advance of the Vistula–Oder Offensive. Warsaw gained the new title of Phoenix City because of its extensive history and complete reconstruction after World War II, which had left over 85% of its buildings in ruins.Warsaw is one of Europes most dynamic metropolitan cities. In 2012 the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked Warsaw as the 32nd most liveable town within the world. In 2017 the town came 4th within the \"Business-friendly\" category and 8th in \"Human capital and life style\". It was also ranked as one of the most liveable cities in Central and Eastern Europe.
The town is a significant centre of research and development, Business process outsourcing, Information technology outsourcing, as well as of the Polish media industry.
