Warsaw

What ended the Holocaust?

The Allied victory over Germany.

The camps were liberated, one by one, and the surviving inmates were freed. Most of them were too sick to go anywhere for a few months. They needed to be fed and given medical treatment. Many died despite the best efforts of the Allies, due to their illnesses and advanced state of starvation.

The Allied armies, coming from both the East (Russians and Poles) and the West (British, Canadians and Americans) forced the Germans to stop fighting and surrender their armies. On 9 May 1945 the last camp (Stutthof) was liberated.

What was the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising?

Please do not confuse the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of April-May 1943 with the much larger Warsaw Uprising of August-October 1944 by the Polish resistance (Home Army).

In the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (April-May, 1943) a small number of Jews still in the Warsaw Ghetto rose in rebellion against the Judenrat and the Nazis. Obviously, they did not stand a chance against the SS, but at least they went down fighting. The Nazis burned down every building in the ghetto.

The later Warsaw Uprising of 1944 was unrelated to the earlier ghetto uprising, though a handful of the 34 Jewish survivors of the ghetto uprising, such as Zivia Lubetkin, took part in both.

---

After the supression of the uprising the Warsaw Ghetto or part of it was turned into a concentration camp, but very little is known about that camp.

What was the Warsaw Ghetto?

It was a section of the city of Warsaw, Poland, which the Germans walled and fenced off from the rest of the city, into which the Germans crammed Polish Jews - while moving Poles out of the area. By severely limiting food and medical support, the Germans used it to exterminate many without expending bullets or using gas chambers. For the Germans, it was an inexpensive and passive method of reducing the Jewish population, but TOO slow. One of the most loathsome features of life in the Warsaw Ghetto was that the Jews were forced, to some extent, to collaborate. The Jewish Council (Judenrat) was responsible for policing the ghetto, for distributing food and so on ... In April 1943 the remaining Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto rose in rebellion. The main uprising was put down within four days, but a small number of individual resistance fighters carried on fighting for some weeks. It was the biggest single act of resistance by the Jews during the Holocaust - and the first urban revolt against Nazi rule in Europe. Please see the links below for more detail. After invading Poland in 1939 the Nazis set up ghettos in many of the Polish cities, including Warsaw. The area was walled off from the rest of the city, and Jews from other parts of Warsaw and from surrouning areas were crammed into the ghetto, and Polish inhabitants were moved out. The area was desperately overcrowded. The amount of food allowed into the ghetto was hopelessly inadequate; no medication was allowed at all. Diseases broke out and many of the inhabitants died of a combination of malnutrition and disease. Most of those still alive in 1942-43 were sent to Trebinka, where they were gassed. The Warsaw Ghetto is particularly well known for the uprising in 1943 (which should not be confused with the larger Warsaw Uprising of 1944).

What was the significance of the Warsaw pact?

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was formed in 1949 by the US, Canada, and nine European nations, the first peacetime military alliance in US History. The NATO nations agreed that an attack on one would be an attack on all. The Soviets replied with the Warsaw Pact, a military alliance of communist nations in Eastern Europe. The Soviets intended that the Pact be a military deterrent to the NATO nations and any plans they might have on attacking the Soviet Union or it's allies.

What were the effects of the Warsaw pact?

I would really describe the Warsaw Pact as an effect of NATO. It gave further justification to Moscow to dictate terms to its satellite states in Eastern Europe and essentially rule over everything east of the Iron Curtain. If anybody opposed them, for instance the Czechs or the Hungarians, Soviets could demand Pact action and make the effort seem more international and once again more justified.

What about the people in these countries? What was the affect on them?

I say that if one country was attacked by another that Moscow would have the power to strike against the attacking country in an act of mutual assistance. Perhaps this would cause another war. In this case, the people of these waring states would have to fight against each other. This would mean loss of population and wealth needed for the war. But that is all hypothetical. There were no wars because why? No country in their right mind would attack any of the seven countries excluding the USSR under the Warsaw Pact for fear of being attacked by one of the world's superpowers at that time: the USSR itself.
