Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

1943

Following mass deportations to the Treblinka extermination camp, the remaining Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto staged an armed revolt in an attempt to avert mass deportation to extermination camps. Several resistance fighters, many of whom belonged to Bnei Akiva and Hashomer Hatzair, managed to fight against the Germans. However the Ghetto was eventually liquidated and an estimated 7000 Jews perished during the uprising. The Warsaw Ghetto uprising was the greatest and most significant Jewish uprising during the Holocaust and inspired uprisings in other Ghettos of that time.
