Seventy-seven years ago the German Nazis invaded Poland and herded the entire Jewish into the Warsaw Ghetto to start the Final Solution.
On 19 April 1943, Jewish fighters launched the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising that ended without survivors.
The Warsaw Uprising took place in 1944. At the end Germans expelled the rest of population and razed Warsaw to the ground.
Then the Soviet troops entered the ruins of Warsaw and liberated the city.
About 85% of the city had been destroyed. The death toll for the Warsaw’s residents was 400.000 Jews and 200.000 Polish murdered by German Nazis.
After the war the rebuilding of Warsaw was initiated and large prefabricated housing projects were erected up to the fall of Communist regime in 1989.
