Lessons 10 & 11: Watching
The Pianist

Learning goal: To understand what the Warsaw ghetto was, and how the Holocaust involved a process of gradual discrimination, exclusion and, finally, extermination.

Success criteria: Students will be able to explain what life was like in the Warsaw ghetto.
What was the Warsaw ghetto?
It soon became clear to those in the ghetto that those who left were not being resettled – as they had been told. In early 1943 the first instance of open revolt occurred in the ghetto. On January 18th, a small group of armed Jews attacked German soldiers who were in the ghetto overseeing the deportations of the remaining Jews. Their success was such that the deportations stopped as the soldiers temporarily withdrew from the ghetto.

It is thought that over 55,000 people were killed during the uprising. There were those who used the city’s sewage system to hide in. They were drowned when the Nazis deliberately flooded the system. The ghetto was levelled. Anyone who was found alive after the uprising was sent to Treblinka and killed. By the end of May 1943, the Warsaw Ghetto had ceased to exist.
