Due to the constant lies by the Germans to the Judenrat, along with thousands of Warsaw Ghetto inhabitants being deported by the day, the Warsaw Jews decided to take control of their own fate. Leaders such as Mordechai Anielewicz sprung up to ignite the hope of the Jewish people. Underground fighting organizations were formed, and for the first time, the Germans were being opposed. Although the Uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto was a futile event for the Jewish Fighting Organization, the members of the resistance group and other Jews in Warsaw had the satisfaction of reacting against the Nazi’s ‘Final Solution’ by continuing their religious studies and holidays, as well as fighting the Nazi’s knowing that when they were going to die, they had resisted the Nazis as long as they could.
