Date Tue, Aug 1, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Duration   1h

In an incredible display of resistance against all odds, the Jewish prisoners in the Treblinka death camp rose up against their captors on August 1, 1943. Treblinka was the most lethal in the constellation of German Nazi death camps; though it functioned for only 13 months, almost 900,000 people were murdered there. Yad Vashem lecturer Liz Elsby will commemorate the 80th anniversary of this powerful event using primary sources, including the art of a survivor and witness to the uprising, Samuel Willenberg. This webinar connects with the Echoes & Reflections Jewish Resistance Unit.
