Time (Eastern Time)

2:00 PM  –  3:00 PM

The 80th anniversary of the beginning of the momentous Warsaw Ghetto Uprising is on April 19th this year. In this talk, Dr. Zachary Mazur will reflect on the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising as a powerful example of Jewish resistance and action in the face of Nazi oppression during the Holocaust. Mazur's presentation draws upon never-before-seen sources and images that were discovered in the process of preparing the POLIN Museum's temporary exhibition Around Us a Sea of Fire, which addresses the civilian experience in bunkers and hideouts during the Uprising.
