Ghettos

The Ghettos

Ghettos were set up to segregate Jews from the rest of the population. —They were designed to be temporary; some lasted only a few days or weeks, others for several years. Living conditions were miserable. Ghettos were often enclosed districts that isolated Jews by separating Jewish communities from the non-Jewish population and from other Jewish communities

Population of the Ghettos

The largest ghetto in Poland was the Warsaw ghetto, where over 400,000 Jewish people were crowded into an area of 1.3 square miles. Tens of thousands of western European Jews were also deported to ghettos in the east. In less than three months, the Hungarian police, in coordination with the Germans, deported nearly 440,000 Jews from ghettos in Hungary to extermination camps. The majority were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
