Warsaw Ghetto Uprising #general


Frieda Libaw <fbl2@...>
 

The doomed but heroic uprising against the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto is
history. Is there any record of the individuals who participated in it
or who played a leading part in the uprising?

My mother, who attended a Warsaw memorial service for the ghetto victims
in 1964, was honored as the oldest living relative of one of the heroes
of the uprising. I think it was her cousin, Itzrock Lachs (or Laks) but
I would like some source through which I might verify this.

Can anyone recommend such a source? Thanks in advance.

The only living leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising is Dr. Marek Edelman,
who is residing in Warsaw, Poland.
Founded in 1949 by the Jewish Fighters of WWII, Kibbutz Lohamei Hagetaot
(The Ghetto Fighters Kibutz) probably have an information you are looking
for.
Visit information about the Kibbutz at:
http://www.gfh.org.il/english/kibutz/kibutz.htm

There are numerous memoirs, diaries and publications, just to mentioned few
such as by Zivia Lubetkin, Leon Najberg, Yitzhak (Antek) Zuckierman,
Mordechai Anielewicz letter, Ignacy Szwarzbrat, Hadassa Talmon, Tuvia
Borzykowski, Israel Gutman, Szmuel Krakowski and several others.

Kibbutz Yad Mordechai, about 10 kilometers south of Ashkelon and a few
kilometers north of the Gaza Strip, was founded by Polish Jews, and is
named in honor of Mordechai Anielewicz, the leader of the Warsaw Ghetto
uprising.

The kibbutz has a museum devoted to the 1948 siege of the kibbutz and the
holocaust in general, and, I believe, the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in
particular. Sorry, I don't remember details; it's been many years since
I was there. They may have specifics you're looking for. I do not know
what research facilities may be available, and I don't know if they have
a web site. I believe the kibbutz address is: Kibbutz Yad Mordechai,
D.N. (stands for rural post) Ashkelon, Israel.

Hope that might help.
