Today, 75 years ago a group of Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto began the uprising against the Nazi which lasted 27 days. Today, we remember the heroism and sacrifice of those who chose to resist against the impossible odd to die in dignity and save the human spirit.
The anniversary of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising is celebrated every year in Poland by the distribution of yellow paper flower pins (symbolically representing the yellow star).
