CAPTION ENDS ON SLIDE 2.
Today (April 19), on its 75th anniversary, we remember the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, considered the most important episode of Jewish resistance during World War II. The uprising occurred when Jewish resistance fighters arose in the Warsaw Ghetto of German-occupied Poland and pushed back against Nazi Germany's final effort to transport the remaining Ghetto population to Treblinka.
German armies had occupied Poland in 1939 and began herding Jewish people into enclosed Ghettos where they were reduced to the status of slaves. The Nazis first planned to starve the inhabitants, and when that failed to wipe out the Jewish population, they began deporting them to the death camps.
The Nazis relied heavily on the cooperation of the Jewish establishment. On the left was the Jewish socialist organization, the Bund, which allied itself to the left wing Polish Socialist Party, and the other side was the Jewish councils, the Judenrat. In each Ghetto a Jewish council was charged by the Nazis with policing the population and suppressing resistance, with many councils of the belief that resistance was useless. At this point, the underground had a clear choice—to fight or give up.
By July 1942, Nazis had embarked on a policy of mass extermination. They demanded a daily quota of deportees to the death camp at Treblinka and the Jewish council was given the job of organizing people to fill the trains. Tragically, the Jewish police did their job well, and as a result, became the first targets of the resistance movement starting with the assassination of the deputy Jewish police chief.
The Bund and left Jewish organizations formed the Jewish fighting organization, ZOB, with their main difficulty being accumulating arms. They relied on guns smuggled into the ghetto through sewers and home-made grenades.

Mad Dax’s idea. Killjoy, the Jmix.
Not a diss of Ab-Soul or Kenan Thompson or Muslims. Totally a diss of the Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement, Richard Spencer, and other human excrement. B-side to the Killjoy single. 5/11/18. And we got a dude to make the record legit now.
