1943: The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising begins in German-occupied Poland, with a resistance rising up against Nazi efforts to transport the ghetto's remaining Jewish population to Treblinka extermination camp. The rebellion, the largest single revolt by the Jews during World War II, ended when the poorly armed and supplied resistance was crushed by the Germans, who officially finished their operation to liquidate the ghetto on May 16.
