Some 200 people in Warsaw on Saturday marked the 71st anniversary of the start of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising during World War II.

Masses commemorated the act of Jewish revolt against final Nazi efforts in 1943 to deport the remaining ghetto population to death camps.

Prayers were recited and officials laid wreaths at the Monument to the Ghetto Heros in the Polish capital.

The crowds then marched to the Umschlagplatz square where Jews had been rounded up by German troops for deportation to the Treblinka death camp.
