The Warsaw Ghetto is significant in history because it was the starting point for Nazi plans to exterminate the Jews not because it was a symbol of freedom. That is pure reflections from today onto the past and not the other way around. Turning a catastrophic defeat into a victory takes a colossal sense of delusion, the type of delusion many religious people suffer from. Also the claim that the Holocaust had nothing to do with the founding of Israel is facile. Without the Holocaust most European Jewry would not have been inspired to leave their homes for the Middle East. This is the truth. Why would they? The Holocaust and persecution drove them to the Levant. But if Israelis insist on their alternate theory then they can no longer cling to the Holocaust for justification for the State of Israel and for many things besides. You can't have it both ways.
