The Warsaw Ghetto

A collection of photographs taken inside the Warsaw Ghetto in 1941 by Joe J. Heydecker, a German soldier. The ghetto, which was enforced for nearly three years, was the largest in Nazi-occupied Europe. 400,000 Jews were confined there, of which at least 300,000 lost their lives either in its violent eventual conclusion, or after transport to one of the many active and appalling concentration camps.
