19 April 2020 marks the 77th 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, due to the pandemic, POLIN Museum is running the campaign on the Internet and invites everyone to join in the commemoration.
