Ghetto Uprising better known than Warsaw Uprising?

Honestly, I think people in the West confuse the two and think it was the same thing (1 event)

About 10 years ago the Chicago SunTimes had a feature article on the Warsaw Uprising and a couple of days later a reader commented in the letters section that he was wondering why it wasn't mentioned that so many Jews were killed in the uprising. This person was unaware of the Warsaw Uprising and evidently thought that the Jewish Ghetto Uprising was the only one.

Well in many countries they don't even know their own history that much...

77 years ago, on April 19, 1943, Jewish fighters from ┼╗OB and ZZW resisted armed German troops that began to liquidate the Warsaw ghetto

Let us today on this 77th anniversary remember the brave Jews who stood up to fight for their very existence.

"The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was a sign of great courage, but at the same time a cry of despair of Jews who were murdered every day by German torturers; we remember this courage and desire for freedom - Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki wrote on Sunday, the 77th anniversary of the uprising. "

stood up to fight for their very existence.

Something we should never forget.

Have you read the Leon Uris book, Mila 18?
