Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, 19th April - 16th May 1943

The Uprising was the 1943 act of Jewish resistance that arose within the Warsaw Ghetto in German-occupied Poland during World War II, and which opposed Nazi Germany’s final effort to transport the remaining Ghetto population to Treblinka extermination camp. The most significant portion of the rebellion took place beginning on 19 April, but ended when the poorly supplied resistance was defeated by the German soldiers. This officially finished their operation to liquidate the Ghetto on 16 May. It was the largest single revolt by Jews during World War II. [read more]

Not to be confused with the Warsaw Uprising of 1944.

Tbh, I’d tell them at the beginning, how to pronounce it, but I know that then it wouldn’t be funny enough~

How dare you, mr. Comey

Ten minutes ago I’ve heard scandalous statement made by James B. Comey. He said that Poles and Hungarian are responsible for Holocaust. HOW DARE YOU? If you don’t know history, go back to school and don’t spread such stupid information. Mr. Comey (and those of you who believed in this shit) do you know how many Poles died because of fact, that they were helping Jews? Do you know amount of Polish Jews? Do you know how much blood was on our streets? How many people risked their life to save their Jewish friends and neighbors?

I will say again HOW DARE YOU. You insult us and what’s more horrible - you insult our grandparents and great-grandparents. That’s disgusting.

Don’t generalize.  We are not murderers. We helped a lot of Jews.  It’s sad that America see us as bandits, because in Second World War we were the country who suffered the most.  We were first to fight, we were first who stand in battle to defend freedom. And we didn’t do concentration camps. WE WERE DYING IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS. A half of population in Poland died there with Jews. So, America - don’t use the name ’polish concentration camp’.

We were suffering up to 1989, when we finally became free. In 1945 - 1989 in Poland soviet communists ruled with iron hand and they did a lot of bad things. They were one of those who hated Jews. But normal people, normal citizens liked Jews. And we like them now.

I would like to salute to our Hungarian brothers and Jewish friends.

And what about you, Mr. Comey…  I hope that in your nightmare you will see the blood of murdered Poles. You will hear the shouts of polish children who were murdered by Nazi.

Sorry for mistakes - i’m stressed and indignant . My tears are falling at my keyboard.
And yes, I’m from Poland. And i’m proud of that <3
