Before the Holocaust, approximately one-third of Warsaw was Jewish.
On April 19, 1943, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising broke out, which was on the eve of the Jewish festival of Passover. German troops stormed the ghetto, intent on completing the deportation process within three days, yet were ambushed by Jewish rebels. This year, close to eight decades later, families of ghetto survivors will celebrate the Jewish festival of redemption together.
