5th International Symposium of European Institutions dealing with 20th-Century History
Budapest, 24-26 May 2016
On 19 April we commemorate the anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. It was on 19 April 1943 when the German troops entered the ghetto to fulfil Heinrich Himmler’s order to conduct final liquidation of the ghetto. They encountered an unprecedented resistance of the Jewish fighters, who for almost a month struggled with the occupants, without any hope for victory, believing only in protecting their honour and dignity.
