The Israeli Postal Service has issued a new stamp to honor the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The stamp features Paweł Frenkel (1920-1943), one of the senior commanders of the Jewish Military Organization (ZZW), against a building on Muranowski Square that was torched by the Germans... Zionist and Polish flags are visible on the roof...Also involved in the fighting were other Jewish organizations and individuals from every walk of life, including Hasidim and yeshiva boys. In the early 1950s, the Warsaw Ghetto Resistance Fighters’ Organization (WAGRO ) was founded by Warsaw Ghetto fighters Vladka  and Ben Meed and Jack Eisner, and was one of the first groups to commemorate the Holocaust on Yom HaShoah ve HaGevurah. Today that commemoration is under the aegis of the Museum of Jewish Heritage/A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, WAGRO, The American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Their Descendants, The ADL and other Jewish organizations.
