Virtual: The Warsaw ghetto uprising was the largest 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. Their courage led to numerous smaller uprisings in ghettos and concentration camps and inspired the Polish population to resist the Germans in the citywide uprising of August 1944.
