Jewish Uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto

This film clip is a reenactment of the Jewish uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto. For a detailed account of these brave Jews and their amazing battle against the superior forces of the Nazis read here about the book Flags over Warsaw.

In his groundbreaking work, Israel’s former Minister of Defense, Prof. Moshe Arens, recounts a true tale of daring, courage, and sacrifice that should be accurately told – out of respect for and in homage to the fighters who rose against the German attempt to liquidate the Warsaw ghetto, and made a last-ditch fight for the honor of the Jewish people. The generally accepted account of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising is incomplete. The truth begins with the existence of not one, but two resistance organizations in the ghetto. Two young men, Mordechai Anielewicz of the Jewish Fighting Organization (ZOB), and Pawel Frenkel of the Jewish Military Organization (ZZW), rose to lead separate resistance organizations in the ghetto, which did not unite despite the desperate battle they were facing.

Professor Moshe Arens – as is his way – is single-minded and does historical justice to the fearless fighters and members of the Betar movement. This book is an essential addition to the library of Holocaust heroism -  Rabbi Israel Meir Lau Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv-Yaffo and Chairman of the Yad Vashem Council
