Text Description

An early eyewitness expose of Jewish life inside the Warsaw Ghetto over the course of 1942 by a Pole who journaled about his observations and even spoke with residents of the Ghetto, including an escapee from Treblinka.

The Warsaw Ghetto was the largest ghetto in Nazi-occupied Europe, containing around around 460,000 inhabitants in 1941. The living conditions in the ghetto were very difficult; there was extreme overcrowding whilst disease and starvation were rife. The Ghetto was liquidated in May 1943 as retribution for the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising a month earlier.
