1. German soldiers of the Waffen-SS force a Jewish combatant from his bunker during the suppression of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The armed uprising by Jews forced into the Ghetto began on 18 January 1943, after the Germans final effort to transport the remaining Ghetto population to Treblinka concentration camp. The most significant portion of the rebellion took place from 19 April 1943 when the German police and SS auxiliary forces entered the Ghetto. The uprising ended when the poorly armed and supplied Resistance was crushed by the Germans, who officially completed their operation to liquidate the Ghetto on 16 May 1943. 13,000 Jews were killed in the Ghetto during the uprising (some 6,000 among them were burnt alive or died from smoke inhalation). Of the remaining 50,000 residents, most were captured and shipped to concentration and extermination camps, in particular to Treblinka. The following year, the non-Jewish, general Polish population of Warsaw would begin the Warsaw Uprising, which in turn, would also be violently quashed by the Germans. Warsaw, Masovian Voivodeship, Poland. April 1943.
