Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

78 years ago today, an uprising broke out in the Warsaw Ghetto. It was the first large-scale revolt by Jews during World War II, and the first urban uprising in Nazi German-occupied Europe as well. Hundreds of armed Jews took part in the fighting against the Germans, which lasted 27 days, until May 16. To honor those who fight for the dignity and freedom of the Jewish people, Poles make and wear yellow daffodils🌼on the anniversary as a sign of solidarity, resistance, and memory. Moreover, there are a series of events streamed online hold by POLIN Museum in Warsaw, to commemorate the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.🕯️
