On this day 79 years ago, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising broke out
Remembering the Warsaw Ghetto
“We have an underground, and we're gonna fight the Germans. I know we're not gonna win, but we're not gonna go anymore.” —Sol Liber, a fighter in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, which broke out on the eve of Passover, April 19, 1943
Genocide Awareness Month recalls the courage and resilience of victims and survivors of mass atrocities. Today, we strive to learn from these experiences and develop qualities like those exemplified by Holocaust survivor Sol Liber. Sol maintained his dignity and determination as he resisted his oppressors to protect himself and his community, no matter the cost.
Decades later, survivors like Sol lent their voices to USC Shoah Foundation’sVisual History Archive so that their stories would never be lost to time. The preservation of survivor and witness testimony is essential in cultivating the understanding, empathy, and respect with which future generations can stand against hate.
Your support honors Sol’s memory——and the memory of millions more who did not survive——by bringing testimony-based educational material to classrooms and communities around the world. In honor of Genocide Awareness Month and in the spirit of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, take a stand against the forces of hatred and make a gift to USC Shoah Foundation’s Annual Fund today.
“It is something you don’t forget. If you wake me up in the middle of the night, I will tell you the same story,” Holocaust survivor Sally Singer, 100.
Sally has two sisters and a brother. They all live close to one another in Winnipeg, Canada, and together may comprise the oldest living set of Holocaust survivor siblings in the world. They are certainly the oldest siblings currently recording their testimonies with USC Shoah Foundation.
