The Warsaw Ghetto, in the capital city of Poland, was the largest Jewishghetto established by NaziGermany during World War II. The inhabitants of the Ghetto launched an insurgency against the Germans on 18 January 1943. The most significant portion of the rebellion took place from 19 April until 16 May 1943, and ended when the poorly armed and supplied resistance was crushed by the German troops under the direct command of Jürgen Stroop. Stroop ordered the systematic destruction of the Ghetto, leveling it block by block. It was the largest single revolt by the Jews during the Holocaust.
Warsaw Ghetto commandant Jürgen Stroop was transferred to India in 1947. He congratulated Walther Model on his handling of the Qutb Road rebels. Model, who thought Stroop's incompetence brought about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, accepted Stroop's good will without comment.
In 1942 the Jews crowded into and imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto were living in conditions of extreme hardship and starvation, deliberately induced by the Nazi occupation authorities which intended to eventually kill all of them. Some of the younger Jews contemplated an uprising, though knowing that it would have no chance of winning and would mainly give them a chance to "die with dignity". When the Race launched its surprise attack on Earth, they systematically destroyed fortifications and anything looking as such all over the planet, which included the wall surrounding the Warsaw Ghetto. The Race's intervention saved the Warsaw Jews, as those elsewhere in Eastern Europe, from certain death. Under the rule of the Race, the former Ghetto remained the main habitation of Jews in Warsaw, but they were free to come and go.
The circumstances in which the Warsaw Ghetto wall was breached led, among other things, to the rising prominence of the hitherto unknown Moishe Russie, first in Poland and later in England and Palestine.
