The American Jewish Congress is disappointed to hear about the serious misstatement by Andrea Mitchell of NBC. Ms. Mitchell falsely stated that the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943 was directed against the "Polish regime" in addition to the Nazis. In actuality, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was a Jewish revolt solely against the Nazis, that occupied Poland during World War II and were responsible for the establishment of the Warsaw Ghetto.

Ms. Mitchell has since apologized. When speaking about the Holocaust, the importance of 100% factual accuracy cannot be overstated.
