We say farewell to Leon Kopelman

It is with great sadness that we received the news of the death of Leon Kopelman, a friend of the Warsaw Ghetto Museum and probably the last living participant in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

After the suppression of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, Leon Kopelman was a prisoner in Pawiak and KL Warsaw. After the “Gęsiówka” labor camp was recaptured by the soldiers of the “Zośka” battalion, Kopelman joined the “Radosław” group and fought as a volunteer in the Warsaw Uprising in Wola, the Old Town, Śródmieście and Górny Czerniaków.
