There is an exhibit titled "Foreigners in the Rising" and "Persistance" on the second floor of the Warsaw Uprising Museum.

I've got to know that apart from Poles volunteers of many other nationalites took part in the Uprising. The most numerous were Jews. Slovaks formed own platoon which also included Georgians, Ormians, Azerbeijani, Czechs and Ukrainians. Add a dozen or so French and Hungarians, a few Belgians, Dutch, Greeks, Englishmen and Italians, and one Romanian and Australian.

If you are interested in holocaust and Jews I recommend to read the following books by Wladyslaw Bartoszewski:
1. "The blood shed unites us: Pages from the history of help to the Jews in occupied Poland."
2. "Above divisions: Selected speeches and interviews : July-December 2000."
3. "The Warsaw Ghetto - A Christian's Testimony."
4. "Surviving Treblinka."
