Recall Role of Jews in 1830 Polish Insurrection

A memorial stone in honor of the Polish patriots who fell in the insurrection of 1830, in defending the arsenal, which is now a prison, was unveiled today in the centre of the Warsaw Jewish quarter on Nalewki Square.

Thousands of Jews participated and special memorial services were held in the synagogues. During the 1830 insurrection not only the Jews of Congress Poland but also of Vohlynia and White Russia helped the insurrectionists against the Czarist armies. The Jewish press publishes today hitherto unknown archives containing material regarding the Jewish participation in the Polish insurrection.
