Jews need heroes, especially during the holocaust, but these are hard to find, especially in the Warsaw Ghetto revolt. The revolt started only in the the SECOND phase of the Ghetto's liquidation (1943). In the first phase (1942), most of the Ghetto Jews were shipped to Treblinka to be killed. There were only some 50,000 Jews left (that the Germans knew of; actually another 10,000 souls were hiding there too.) By 1943, the Ghetto Jews knew of the fate of their relatives and knew they themselves would be killed. Only then did they manage to revolt, when the choice was death by gas or bullets. One may claim this is also heroic, but let us know its real dimensions.
