After the Great Warsaw Operation in the summer of 1942, an operation in which more than a quarter of a million Jews were deported from the ghetto to Treblinka to be killed.
The revolt began on 19 April when the Jews in the ghetto refused to surrender to the orders of SS-Brigadeführer Jürgen Stroop, who then ordered the immediate burning down of the ghetto itself, block after blockade. The extermination on 16 May counted 13,000 Jews as victims, about half of whom were burned alive or suffocated. It was the biggest single revolt of the Jews during the whole Second World War.
In the outer ring of the bimetallic coin are circularly distributed the stars, twelve, symbol of the European countries.
