January 18

1724

Pope Innocent XIII issues Papal Bull "Ex injuncto nobis,"
which forbids Jews from selling new objects. (Wilensky, p.
330)

1943

In what has become known as the "small revolt" in the Warsaw
ghetto, members of the Jewish Fighting Organization mount
armed resistance in response to German efforts to deport
Jews from the ghetto. Four days of street fighting follow.
About six thousand Jews are deported, but the Germans then
withdraw from the ghetto. (USHMM, 1993. Pg. 19)

1944

The British Foreign Office informs the World Jewish Congress
(WJC) that BBC reports about the deportation of Jews would
not help the deportees and might result in increased
persecution. (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 25)

January 18-23, 1943

Five to six thousand Jews are arrested in a series of mass
roundups in the Warsaw ghetto in accordance with Himmler's
orders of January 9. (USHMM, 1993. Pg. 20)
