Polish Resistance WWII #general

Some clarifications re Polish Resistance Movements.
There were two major Jewish resistance groups: 1) Zydowski Zwiazek Wojskowy,
Z.Z.W. (Jewish Military Union), Waraw Ghetto
2) The Jewish Fighting Organisation (Yiddishe-Kamf- Organisatsie) YKA.
Proclamations in Polish issued by this group were signed ZOB, Zydowska
Organizacja Bojowa - Jewish Fighting organisation, Warsaw Ghetto.

There is documentary evidence that many members of ZZW and ZOB who survived
the Warsaw Ghetto uprising joined the Polish resistance movement such as the
Armia Krajowa (AK) and fell in battle during the Polish Warsaw uprising
later on.
