Ghetto
Not the kind most people think of today During World War II, ghettos were city districts (often enclosed) in which the Germans concentrated the municipal and sometimes regional Jewish population and forced them to live under miserable conditions. Ghettos isolated Jews by separating Jewish communities from the non-Jewish population and from other Jewish communities. The Germans established at least 1,000 ghettos in German-occupied and annexed Poland and the Soviet Union alone. German occupation authorities established the first ghetto in Poland in October 1939.

Nazis didnt want Jews coming into contact with the rest of a city or town. The picture on the right shows how ghettos were sealed off from the rest of a city by walls up to ten feet high.

Whats for Lunch?

How many Taco Bell tacos could you eat?

How much are you allowed to eat?


If you kept your hand up past 2 tacos, then you would be very hungry in a ghetto where people were sometimes limited to 300 calories a day. That is about 1 Taco Bell tacos or 4 donettes or two cans of Coke.
