80th Anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

Hosted By: The Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights (TOLI), Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA)

This Holocaust Remembrance Day, April 17, we also mark the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, one of the largest forms of Jewish resistance during the Holocaust. Join us for an Eyewitness Account with Alex Groth, Survivor and scholar.

Alex was a nine-year-old boy living in the Warsaw Ghetto with his mother when the uprising began against the Nazi deportation to the death camps. Remarkably, they escaped the atrocities and were hidden in Poland during the remainder of the war. They left for the US, where Alex built a distinguished career as a political scientist — he is an Emeritus Professor at the University of California, Davis — and author of many books, including Holocaust Voices, a collection of interviews and observations conducted with Holocaust survivors.

Alex will be interviewed by Andrew Sillow-Caroll, JTA Managing Editor and Editor-in-Chief of the Jewish Week of NY, will conduct the interview and lead a discussion with the eyewitness and Scholar of this historic event.
