This pioneering project gathers data from research studies, historical information, testimonies and documents dealing with more than 1,100 ghettos throughout mainly Eastern Europe. It reflects the differences between each ghetto and reveals the radical changes in Jewish communal and individual life. The entries include the location, wartime name and geographical coordinates of each ghetto; and, for the larger ghettos, informational sections on the following: Pre-World War II; Soviet occupation; German (Nazi) occupation; ghetto setup; ghetto institutions and internal life; murder, terror and killing operations of ghetto inhabitants; underground and resistance; and number of survivors at liberation. Finalist of the 2010 National Jewish Book Award in the category of Holocaust Studies, and selected for the Booklist/RBB Editors’ Choice: Reference Sources Awards.
