Warsaw Ghetto Symposium
With Rabbi Tzvi Hersh Weinreb, Mrs. Estelle Laughlin, Dr. Miriam Isaacs, Dr. Ann Millin
National Jewish Retreat
An innocent sheep surrounded by vicious wolves, the Jewish people have long been accustomed to aggression; yet often we have no means of physical defense. One of the rare occasions in history where the Jews picked up arms and fought back with fire, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising is often hailed as a prime example of Jewish resistance.
In this comprehensive panel presented at the National Jewish Retreat, discover what was the true defiance of the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto. Hear about the unassuming acts of moral heroism performed by thousands of men, women, and children in Warsaw and beyond. Far from marching to their deaths like sheep to the slaughter, the millions who perished fought back in the most upstanding way possible; by keeping their spirits alive and retaining an indomitable spirit to their death.
