#onthisday, 1940, the wall of the Warsaw Ghetto was officially sealed to the outside world. Outside the wall, life in Warsaw continued as usual. What occurred over the next two years for those 400,000+ Jews stuck inside the ghetto is widely considered one of the more tragic, horrifying, and inspiring scenes of the Holocaust.
