Recalling Jewish Resistance Against Nazis

JERUSALEM — This
year marked the 40th -an-
niversary of the revolt in
the Warsaw Ghetto, and
was declared the "Year of
Courage" to commemorate
an event which will go down
in Jewish history as the
greatest act of defiance
against the Nazi enemy
perpetrated by the Jews of
the beleagured ghettoes.
Mordehai Anielewicz, the
leader of the revolt, de-
scribed it in his letter to his
comrade-in-arms, Antak
Zuckerman:
" . . . Something has hap-
pened that we could not
have envisaged, even in our
wildest dreams. Twice the
Germans fled in retreat
from the Ghetto . . . be well,

my friend. Our dream be-
came a reality. I was
privileged to see the Jews of
the Ghetto defend- them-
selves with pride ancl cour-
age . . . ".

Jews of the Vilna Ghetto or-
ganized themselves into

Yosef Glazman was born
in Lithuania and was
among the organizers of the
"PPA"— the "United Parti-
sans Organization" as the
Jews of the Vilna Ghetto
called their "army," and
was one of its commanders.
In the service of the under-
ground he also served as the
deputy commander of the
ghetto police and acted
against those who collabo-
rated with the Nazis. He
was famed for his outstand-
ing bravery.
On Oct. 8, 1943, at the
age of 35, he died while
making his way to the
forests.
Risings also took place in
the deathcamps of Sobibor,
Treblinka and Auschwitz,
while thousands of Jews
fought with the partisans in
Byelorussia, Bialystok,
Eastern Galicia, etc. The
Jews were also prominent
in the underground move-
ments of occupied Europe
and over one million fought
with the allied armies —
550,000 with the Ameri-
cans, 500,000 with the Rus-
sians; 150,000 with the
Poles; 150,000 with the
British, while 21,000 volun-
teers from Eretz Israel
served with the allied
forces. Israel issued several
stamps this year to mark
the resistance to the Nazis.
They are superimposed here

mon Germize, who was born
in Odessa in 1931. While
still a young boy he wanted
to take up art and went to an
art school in Odessa, later
completing his studies at
Leningrad's Rupin
Academy of Art. He taught
for a while in Odessa until
emigrating to Israel in
1972.
