Umschlagplatz monument. Doomed struggle (Photo: AP)
Flowers were laid Tuesday at the monument to Ghetto fighters and at a monument at the point where in 1942 and 1943 Jews gathered for deportation on trains bound for the Treblinka death camp.
The uprising was the first act of large-scale armed civilian resistance against the Germans in occupied Poland during World War II.
The resistance of young and poorly armed Jews was a doomed struggle, yet some managed to survive and today the act of resistance stands as a source of pride for many Jews.
