New photos from Warsaw Ghetto Uprising published

Never-before-seen photographs of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943 have been released—from an attic.


The photographs were taken by Zbigniew Leszek Grzywaczewski, then in his early twenties. His photos, some of which have been published before, are the only ones not taken from the German side during the uprising. Grzywaczewski was a member of the firefighting crews sent by the Germans to the ghetto, and he took the pictures secretly with a camouflaged camera.

The battle, in which hundreds of resistance members took part, is not explicitly shown in the pictures, but the destruction caused by German reprisals and deportations are clearly visible. The photos were discovered by Grzywaczewski's son Maciej in his sister’s attic.
