On April 19, 1943 a group of about 220 Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto staged a historic, heroic uprising. It marked the largest organized armed rebellion within a Jewish ghetto in Nazi occupied Europe during the Holocaust.
Through commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, all resistance efforts against the Nazis are remembered. The annual commemorations have continued with Yiddish cultural activists carrying on the tradition of honoring the heroism and sacrifice of the Jews of Eastern Europe with remembrances, appropriate Yiddish poetry, music, and the laying of Flowers at Der Shteyn (The Stone)
