This day in Jewish history / Uprising at Sobibor
The rebels, led by Polish-Jewish prisoner Leon Feldhendler and Soviet-Jewish POW Alexander Perchesky, killed about 12 Germans and local guards, and some 300 escaped from the camp.
On this day in 1943, an uprising by prisoners took place at the Sobibor death camp, in German-occupied east Poland.
