A photo exhibition commemorating 70 years since the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising against the Nazis has been unveiled.

The collection of photographs, titled In the Warsaw Ghetto: 1941, taken by a German soldier during a visit to the Ghetto in 1941 opened to the public at the London Jewish Cultural Centre (LJCC), in North End Road, Golders Green, last Monday.

On Thursday, the LJCC held a special private viewing attended by Ghetto survivors Sabina Miller and Wlodka Roberston who spoke alongside Trudy Gold, the centre’s executive director of education and Holocaust studies.

The uprising was the largest single revolt by Jews during the Second World War and arose from opposition to Nazi Germany’s efforts to transport the remaining Ghetto inhabitants to concentration camps.

In the Warsaw Ghetto: 1941 runs at the LJCC until Thursday.
