It is 75 years today since the Warsaw ghetto uprising. On April 19, 1943, the remaining 50,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto attacked the Nazis who were preparing to take them to the gas chambers at Treblinka, and held out for a month before they were finally defeated. The uprising became the ultimate emblem of Jewish resistance to the holocaust. Yet a cloud hangs over this anniversary, as Gulliver Cragg reports.
