The Jewish History Museum in Warsaw, Poland has displayed a collection of photographs taken in secret during the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, some of which have never been seen before, that were recently discovered in a family collection.
The POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews describes the finding as an important discovery.
A Polish firefighter took the photos inside the Warsaw Ghetto as the Nazi Germans brutally crushed the Jewish fighters’ revolt.
On Wednesday the museum’s historians said the images are valuable because they are the only known images from the uprising that were not taken by Nazi German forces and thus were not created with the intention of serving German propaganda.
