Holocaust on Ghettos


The largest ghetto in Poland was the Warsaw ghetto

The Ghetto was not a Nazi invention. it can be traced back to the medieval times. these Ghettos were enclosed districts of a city in which the Germans forced. diseases spread rapidly in cramped unsanitary houses.   


Most of the people starved for food and died of starvation. 10 ,000 of people died of illness. a loss of Jewish not to be exceeded until the years of the holocaust. the German authorities had control over the food and they were strict over it to. very few people had access to running water, and there were no sewage system. in order for them to stay alive, the inmates of the ghetto would often try to obtain extra food for support their family's at any cost.  

I don't think its right to do something like that. why cant they share all the food, what if that was them who was starving to death and thirsting to death. but I bet they never even thought about that. I bet they didn't even care, it just makes me mad to think they would do something like that. I am just really glad I wasn't one of those little kids starving to death, and worrying about if I'm going to eat tonight or not. Glad to have a good life.

how is it finished

In Poland, the Warsaw Ghetto uprising comes to an end as Nazi soldiers gain control of Warsaw’s Jewish ghetto, blowing up the last remaining synagogue and beginning the mass deportation of the ghetto’s remaining dwellers to the Treblinka extermination camp. On January 18, 1943, when the Nazis entered the ghetto to prepare a group for transfer, a ZOB unit ambushed them. Fighting lasted for several days, and a number of Germans soldiers were killed before they withdrew. On April 19, Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler announced that the ghetto was to be cleared out in honor of Hitler’s birthday the following day, and more than 1,000 SS soldiers entered the confines with tanks and heavy artillery. Although many of the ghetto’s remaining 60,000 Jewish dwellers attempted to hide themselves in secret bunkers, more than 1,000 ZOB members met the Germans with gunfire and homemade bombs

Despite being vastly outgunned and outnumbered, some Jews in ghettos and camps did resist the Germans with force. The spirit of these efforts transcends their failure to halt the genocidal policies of the Nazis.

The Jews knew that uprisings would not stop the Germans and that only a handful of fighters would succeed in escaping to join the partisans. Still, some Jews made the decision to resist. Weapons were smuggled into ghettos.

It connects with the movie "Shoah." and the movie "Fateless."

A little video just to put in there.

The kids that have to starve to death, have no food thirst to death.
