19 April 2021 marks the 78th anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising – the biggest Jewish military revolt during WW2, and the first urban insurgency in occupied Europe. POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews organizes a social-education campaign to commemorate the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

This year, we will honor the role of women in this heroic struggle. Female ghetto fighters distributed underground news, cared for wounded insurgents, risked their lives as liasons, and also took an active part in armed combat. Due to the pandemic, this year POLIN Museum is running the campaign on the Internet and invites everyone to join in the commemoration.
