Warsaw Ghetto

Warsaw Ghetto

Hello Sandra Bice, the Warsaw Ghetto was one of the largest ghettos where the Jews lived in the area where Germans were the majority during the Second World War. The ghetto was established by the rulers in Germany between October and November 16th 1940. The ghetto acted as a prison to the Jews where the culprits suffered malnutrition, death and unhealthy living conditions.[1] There were more than 400,000 Jews imprisoned in the ghetto but the rooms available were limited leaving the Jews crowded in a small room. The ghetto was administered by commissioners who were appointed by Fisher.  Among them was Waldemar Schon who was known for creating artificial food shortage in the ghetto.[2] He was replaced by Heinz Auerswald. It was not easy to survive in the ghetto and food was obtained illegally by all the people regardless of gender and age since the level of unemployment was also very high.[3] However, there were organizations that provided social amenities to the people in the ghetto such as hospitals, orphanages, recreation centre and schools
