Warsaw marks 71 years since ghetto revolt

Published: 04.19.14, 15:27 / Israel News

Some 200 members of the Jewish community and Warsaw residents have observed the 71st anniversary of the city ghetto's ill-fated uprising against German Nazi forces.


Officials laid wreaths and the group said prayers at the monument to the Ghetto Heroes on Saturday. Next they walked to the former Umschlag Platz, where in 1943 the Nazis loaded ghetto residents on cattle wagons to take them to the Treblinka camp. About half a million Warsaw's Jews died there.
