Sixty nine years ago, on April the 19th 1943, people who’d been already sentenced to death decided to chose the way they would die.
That day, German troops entering Warsaw ghetto in order to finally “clear” it, were welcomed by bullets and home-made grenades. Jewish military organisations started the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
It wasn’t fight to win, it wasn’t fight for freedom. It was the way to regain dignity.
After the fighting ceased a month later, all the buildings of the ghetto were destroyed. Those inhabitants who survived, were sent to concentration camps.
