THe Many different aspects of the holocaust

The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was the 1943 act of Jewish resistance that arose within the Warsaw Ghetto in German-occupied Poland during World War II, and which opposed Nazi Germany's final effort to transport the remaining Ghetto population to Treblinka extermination camp. The most significant portion of the rebellion took place beginning on 19 April, but ended when the poorly supplied resistance was defeated by the German soldiers. This officially finished their operation to liquidate the Ghetto on 16 May. It was the largest single revolt by Jews during World War II.
Auschwitz was established by the Germans within the area of occupied Oświęcim as a camp for Polish political prisoners. From 1942, Auschwitz-Birkenau soon became one of the main centres for the mass extermination of European Jews. In Auschwitz, the Germans killed at least 1.1 million people, mainly Jews, but also Poles, Roma, Soviet prisoners of war and people of other nationalities.
