The Holocaust- Annotating a Photograph

Nazi soldiers force Jews out of the Warsaw ghetto and toward trains headed to death camps. Jews in the Warsaw ghetto revolted against the Nazis in April and May 1943. Although the Jews were poorly armed, it took about four weeks for the Nazis to end the uprising.
