Polish Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto are searched for weapons and interrogated after being captured as insurgents, or forced from hiding places during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising began in early 1943 when Jews interned in the ghetto began an armed resistance against the German effort to raze the ghetto and send all inhabitants to Treblinka extermination camp. Approximately 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. Warsaw, Masovian Voivodeship, Poland. April 1943.
