Jewish Ghetto in Warsaw

Jewish Ghetto in Warsaw was the biggest ghetto created by the Nazis in Europe during World War II. The Jewish population in Warsaw estimated 400 000 people at that time, which was about 30% of the population of the city. However, the size of the Ghetto was about 2.4% of the size of Warsaw. Almost all Warsaw Jews were killed, either by diseases and famine, or in the extermination camps. In 1943, many of the remaining Jews decided to fight and started the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Although they managed to fight for almost one month, the ghetto was almost totally smashed into the ground by the Nazis.

 

However, we still can find a few original buildings which survived the Ghetto Uprising. One of them is an original No?yk Synagogue which gathers the Jewish community in Warsaw.
