The Polish Post Office have just issued a special First Day Cover commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. A scan of the cover can be seen at the bottom of this page along with a similar special envelope and stamp produced to remember the 20th anniversary on 1963.
The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was an act of Jewish resistance that arose within the Warsaw Ghetto in German-occupied Poland in April 1943. The uprising opposed Nazi Germany’s final efforts to transport the remaining population of the Jewish Ghetto to the concentration camp in Treblinka. The uprising ended when despite fierce fighting the ghetto was finally liquidated on the 16th May. This was the largest single revolt by Jews during World War Two.
