70 th Anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

70 th Anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The events that took place in the spring of 1943 have left an indelible mark on the city of Warsaw. The Uprising – the first among several other uprisings in the ghettos scattered on the territory of Poland – was also first such an event in occupied Europe. After its suppression the Germans razed the ghetto to the ground – only to finish demolishing the whole city of Warsaw a year later, after the uprising of 1944. The fights took place in the very heart of the capital, but at the same time they were conducted “beyond it”, in the closed district cordoned off from the Aryan side witnessing the tragedy behind the walls.

'Aftermath' When Poland antisemitism is back to front page

'Aftermath'   When Poland antisemitism is back to front page | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it
On July 10, 1941, half the residents of Jedwabne, a Polish village 85 miles northeast of Warsaw, murdered the other half.
Mawyl's insight:

The cover-up of Jedwabne massacre is the pitch of the film  but the article focuses on the polish antisemitic reaction to the feature movie. What a surprise ?
