Poczta Polska issued a stampsheet and a FDC to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was the 1943 act of Jewish resistance that arose within the Warsaw Ghetto in German-occupied Poland during World War II, and which opposed Nazi Germany's final effort to transport the remaining Ghetto population to Treblinka extermination camp. The most significant portion of the rebellion took place from 19 April, and ended when the poorly armed and supplied resistance was crushed by the Germans, who officially finished their operation to liquidate the Ghetto on 16 May. It was the largest single revolt by the Jews during World War II.

The issued FDC features an original Jewish resistance women, among them Malka Zdrojewicz (right), who survived Majdanek extermination camp and participated in Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
