Hey I just want to share this - it's the most beautiful thing I've seen this month. It's the Australian Jewish Labour Bund's commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising yesterday. For people who don't know, the collective yorzayt (commemoration of death) for the people who died in the Uprising is April 19th, the first day of Passover 1943 and the day the Uprising began.




Starting during the war and until today, April 19th is a day known by Holocaust survivors and the partisans and resisters who were in Jewish armed resistance movements as khurbntog (Holocaust Day or Catastrophe Day) because of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Israel created Yom Hashoah for its own purposes but people around the world continue to observe and commemorate khurbntog.
