The Jewish quarter : Warsaw during the Nazi occupation / by Linda Klott Brown
Includes bibliographical references (p. 89-91)
The paper describes the Nazi ghettoization of the Warsaw Jews during the occupation of Poland. The Nazi plan was to kill the Jews by use of starvation, disease and forced labor. Some Jews did die according to plan, however, death did not come to the majority of the half million residents who lived in the Warsaw Ghetto. Social life, education and cultural activities all continued to take place within the ghetto confines. Finally the Nazis decided to begin deporting the Warsaw Jews to death camps such as Treblinka or Auschwitz. After more than half of the people living in the ghetto had been liquidated, the remaining residents staged an unsuccessful uprising against their Nazi oppressors. Within a month after the uprising began, the Warsaw Ghetto was no longer in existence.
