Warsaw marks anniversary of Jewish ghetto liquidation

Hundreds of people marched through Warsaw on Friday to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Nazi liquidation of its Jewish ghetto, with the war in Ukraine giving the event fresh resonance.

The procession passed through the location where Jews were deported from the ghetto to the Treblinka extermination camp in central Poland in 1942, an operation that left 260,000 people dead.

Marchers carried symbolic ribbons bearing the names of the deportees.
