August 2nd, 1943, 100 Jewish prisoners in Treblinka seized weapons from the camps armory and staged a revolt.

Several hundred inmates escaped, however, most were brought back as prisoners and executed.

The Nazis had put over 500,000 Jews into the ghetto in Warsaw, though starvation killed thousands each month, the Nazis began transferring more than 5 000 Jews a day to rural labour camps.

Word reached the ghetto in early 1943 that the destination was actually the gas chambers at Treblinka, the newly formed Jewish Fighting Organization (ZOB) attacked the Nazis, killing 50 in four days of street fighting and causing the deportations to halt.
300 Germans and 7 000 Jews approximately were killed in this uprising, as well as another
7 000 Jews deported to Treblinka. This act of resistance, despite it's failure, helped raise morale amongst Jews everywhere, if only briefly.
