April 18, 2023 is Yom Hashoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day. The U.S. Congress designated April 16 to April 23 as Days of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust.     


2023 is the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. This was the largest, and symbolically the most important Jewish uprising in German-occupied Europe. The fighters knew they were bound to lose, but at stake was the honor of the Jewish people. They chose to die fighting.  


A few of the survivors settled in Ohio, George Schoenberg in Cleveland, Rose “Rozia” Grosmen Gelbart in Cleveland, and Szlama and Chaja Lukawiec Lukas in Cleveland.  Read their stories in this exhibit.  


The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising exhibition is a production of the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center.  It tells the stories of the incredibly courageous leaders of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising as well as accounts of survivors. It is hosted by the Ohio Holocaust and Genocide Memorial and Education Commission.
