Anniversary of the Ghetto Uprising

The ghetto established by the Germans in Warsaw in 1940 was home to about 4 hundred thousand Jews. Because of massive deportations of Jews to the Nazi death camps, but also by famine, diseases and the inhuman conditions in the overcrowded district, the number of inhabitants of the Warsaw ghetto continued to drop.

The April 1943 uprising was an attempt to resist the annihilation of the ghetto by the Nazi forces. It was the first act of anti-Nazi resistance of this kind in the occupied Europe. At the moment of the outbreak, about 70 thousand people were living in the closed district.
