Transcript of WW1 Ghettos

Jewish Ghettos in WWII By Trace Short What was life like in Jewish ghettos
during World War 2? What is a Ghetto? During World War II, ghettos were used by the Nazi regime to hold Jews, while only giving them small amounts of food, water, and other necessities.These were eventually turned into concentration camps, and were typically only used to hold Jews until they were to be killed. Revolts, Slavery, and Smugglers During the time ghettos were used, revolts were common among the Jewish people. These were often put down quickly by the Germans, but the Warsaw Uprising in 1942 was able to prove that these makeshift militias could make a difference. Though unsuccessful, this rebellion did hold out for almost a year, and kept the residents of the ghetto hopeful. Within the ghettos, Jewish councils were setup to control the people and try to keep operations as they were before the war. This included police, whom the Germans took the responsibility for. This included killing officers if they were suspected of not doing their job. They were essentially slaves to the Germans. However, the Jewish "councils" tried to help as much as possible. Most overlooked and even encouraged the smuggling of goods over the city walls, though this was dangerous to do. The Aftermath of WWII The word "ghetto" has always been used to describe a part of a city that is mainly populated by a particular ethnic group. However, due to the nature of ghettos in World War II, it has since become more of an insult than anything. WORKS CITED "Ghettos." American Holocaust Museum. N.p., n.d.
