How this wall changed my life
I recently returned from a trip to Poland with a group of my students  as part of a course on the Holocaust. I've been to Poland a number of times and visited many concentration and death camps, but this was my first visit to the site of the Warsaw Ghetto, where one of the most gripping stories of Jewish resistance unfolded. In 1982 the story of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising shocked my understanding of history and propelled me in a new direction. I would like to tell you more about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and one of its heroes. Please sign my guest book and listen to more of the story. There's also a photo slideshow on the next page.
