Flags Over the Warsaw Ghetto The Untold Story of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, Arens, Moshe
1 Arens, Moshe Flags Over the Warsaw Ghetto The Untold Story of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
Springfield, NJ Geffen Books 2011 9652295272 / 9789652295279 Softcover New 
Signed by Moshe Arens. The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising has become a symbol of heroism throughout the world. On the eve of Passover, April 19, 1943, German forces entered the Warsaw ghetto equipped with tanks,flame throwers, and machine guns. Aga inst them stood an army of a few hundred young Jewish men and women, armed with pistols and Molotov cocktails. The fighters were cut off from the rest of the world, not offered any assistance or encouragement. As far as Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin were concerned, they did not exist. Who were these Jewish fighters who dared oppose the might of the SS troops under the command of SS General Juergen Stroop? Who commanded them in battle? What were their goals? In this groundbreaking work, Israel's former Minister of Defense and Ambassador to the USA, Prof. Moshe Arens, recounts a true tale of daring, courage, and sacrifice that should be accurately told out of respect for and in homage to the fighters who rose against the German attempt to liquidate the Warsaw ghetto, and made a last ditch fight for the honor of the Jewish people
