German soldiers setting fire to the Warsaw ghetto. The biggest uprising against the Nazis took place in the Warsaw ghetto in April - May 1943, when the Jewish Fighting Organization (ZOB) resisted an attempt by SS forces to "liquidate" the ghetto. More than a thousand armed members of the underground fought a German force of 3,000 men, tanks and artillery for almost three weeks.
