Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Dec 13, 2012, 07:17 PM

First time poster in this group. An open question to Jews:

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by ellisonz (a host of the Jewish Group group).

Was the "Warsaw Uprising" and (similar uprisings against Nazi occupation, including at extermination camps), a real event? If so, are these events widely-known within the Jewish community, and do they occupy an important and positive part of Jewish culture and history?

Thank you for your indulgence.

1. At least for my generation - 65+ - Yes yes and yes.

Younger people may have different answers.

2. Thank you so much. Has this history been forgotten by the young...

or has it become politicized around progressive - reactionary outlooks? Thank you again.

3. Certainly has

You can read about in Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Ghetto_Uprising

If you've heard of Yom Ha'Shoa - Holocaust Day - it is observed on the day, plus one week, when uprising started. (It started on the Eve of Passover and selecting that date would have been a bit complicated).

It is widely known among Jews who have observed Holocaust Day and who have visited any of the Holocaust Museums.

4. I suspected as much. I also saw a video on a site

Named "Save The Music." Uprisings were dramatically depicted (along with still shots, some horrible).

Due to some hostile reaction I got for posting these events, and hypothesizing that the Nazi confiscation of guns using registration records handicapped ghetto-bound Jews, I
I was termed NRA/RW troll. The OP was quickly canned by jury. Leaving aside my hypothesis, I want to further ask if the site, video, or whole approach to this history is a promulgation by reactionary/rightist entities.

Thankyou so much.

5. I am not sure to what you are referring

Can you give a link to the site or the video?

Sadly, many use the Nazi confiscation of guns as justification for preventing gun control in this country. I would like to think that we are not Nazi Germany, not in a long run.

9. Your purpose was to use Jews and Jewish history as "useful tools"...

... for making a sick and ignorant argument. Your ignorance, and your disregard for our humanity, our history, and our actual views, is manifest in your sign-off. Hanukkah ended days ago.

10. The Hosts of the Jewish Group are in agreement: this post is a stinker.

This thread has run its course and ought to be locked. The OP has also been blocked from posting or in the group.
