Warsaw Ghetto Daffodils

Thank you for sharing, Sandy.

 70 years ago — April 19, 1943 — the Warsaw ghetto uprising began. The malnourished, poorly-armed Jewish resistance fought against the Nazi tanks and cannons for more than 3 weeks –until May 16 when the Nazis blew up the grand synagogue on Tłomackie street. In memory of the more than 450,000 Jewish men, women, and children who died in the ghetto, during the resistance, or afterward in the extermination camps, I will be wearing a yellow daffodil — the symbol of respect, remembrance and hope.
