A documentation of life in the Warsaw Ghetto, based on black-and-white photographs taken by a German soldier in September 1941. The Warsaw Ghetto was the largest ghetto established by the Nazis and was home to nearly half a million Jews. For two-and-a-half years Jews from all over Poland were herded into the ghetto and forced to live in terrible conditions of overcrowding, hunger and disease. Following the uprising in Spring 1943, the Nazis razed the ghetto to the ground.
