#AceHistoryNews – Apr.20: The Warsaw ghetto occupied an area of less than two square miles but soon held almost 500,000 Jews in deplorable conditions: Disease and starvation killed thousands every month, and beginning in July 1942, 6,000 Jews per day were transferred to the Treblinka concentration camp…………………An underground resistance group was established in the ghetto–the Jewish Combat Organization (ZOB)–and limited arms were acquired at great cost #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8372: On April 19, Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler announced that the ghetto was to be emptied of its residents in honor of Hitler’s birthday the following day, and more than 1,000 S.S. soldiers entered the confines with tanks and heavy artillery: Although many of the ghetto’s remaining 60,000 Jewish dwellers attempted to hide themselves in secret bunkers, more than 1,000 ZOB members met the Germans with gunfire and homemade bombs: Suffering moderate casualties, the Germans initially withdrew but soon returned, and on April 24 launched an all-out attack against the Warsaw Jews……………Thousands were slaughtered………….The ZOB took to the sewers to continue the fight, but on May 8 their command bunker fell to the Germans and their leaders committed suicide………..By May 16, the ghetto was firmly under Nazi control, and mass deportation of the last Warsaw Jews to Treblinka began…………..During the uprising, some 300 German soldiers were killed, and thousands of Warsaw Jews were massacred…………..Virtually all those who survived the Uprising to reach Treblinka were dead by the end of the war. #1943 #History #WWII #WarsawGhetto 📷: United States Holocaust Memorial Museum #OTD #AceHistoryNews
