We join POLIN, the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, in remembering the anniversary tomorrow of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.

The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Campaign, an initiative of POLIN Museum, is an educational and commemorative event that takes place every year on April 19, the anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. For almost a decade, hundreds of volunteers in Warsaw and other cities have been handing out paper daffodils to raise awareness of the uprising and its significance.

Why the daffodil? Marek Edelman, the last surviving leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, used to receive a bouquet of yellow daffodils from an anonymous person every year on April 19. He would lay them at the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes in memory of those who fought and died. The paper daffodils, which people wear on this day, are inspired by this custom. Edelman, who remained in Poland after the war, passed away in 2009.

Join the online campaign to keep the memory alive.

For details visit Friends of POLIN on Facebook or POLIN Museumโ€™s website: Polin.pl/en/Warsawghettouprising
