Mordechai Anielewicz was the commander of the ZOB in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. He had leadership experience in the Zionist group Ha-shomer Ha-tsa'ir. He also led preparations for the battles in April and May 1943. On May 8, 1943 he was killed in his bunker. One of his last quotes to a friend was "My life's dream has come true; I have lived to see Jewish resistance in the ghetto in all its greatness and glory."
Emanuel Ringelblum was a historian who recorded the events in the Warsaw Ghetto. His archives, the Oneg Shabbat, make up much of what the world knows about the Warsaw Ghetto today. He trained a team of historians to record everything they experienced in the ghetto. He was deported to a labor camp, but escaped with the help of the Resistance. He survived, in hiding, until 1944, where he was found by the Nazis, then murdered.
