2. Antisemitic Polish Home Army never helped Jewish uprising

3. Missed the whole point: Russia did this
The Red Army was right across the river and could have swept in to save the Poles at any time.

Instead, because this revolt was lead by the non-Communist resistance, the Soviets chose to hold back and let the Germans kill everybody. Better to get rid of the patriots and leaders before subjugating the country themselves. Just like the Katyn massacre.
4. I think most Israels would consider that revolt murderous
kms ,   Jerusalem   (08.03.19)
acts of terror, terror when Jews are resisted but revolt when their enemies
are victorious
5. Somebody has to get his bloody 'rythmetic right here!!
6. They deserve credit for trying, HOWEVER
solomon ,   New York   (08.03.19)
1. The Russians were on the other side of the Vistula and did not help: they wanted as many Poles killed as possible
2. These were the people who (mostly) did nothing to help the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. Poles helped the Jews, but pitifly (sp?) few.
7. In other words...
solomon ,   New York   (08.03.19)
1. They had hoped the Russians would help but Russia preferred that the Poles die before Russia will take over the country.
2. They did not help the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. (Actually, many did, but not even close to the majority of Poles. Kol Hakavod to those who did try and help.)
8. After witnessing the Soviet betrayal in Warsaw,
Steve Benassi ,   Minneapolis USA   (08.06.19)
Serbian underground resistance didn't fight the Nazis when Red Army approached Belgrade and because of that tens of thousands of Soviet troops died in liberating it.
