When did it happen? After the Nazi party came to power, torment on Jews began. People in Germany would criticize Jews just because they believed in something different. The Germans even broke the Jews business windows and robbed them.
Why? The Germans thought that the Jews were the reason for all their country’s loss in WWI. When the Nazi Party came to power, they started making laws that forbade Jews to do certain things. For example: they weren’t allowed to teach they weren’t allowed to help in government they also weren’t allowed to help in medicine.
Leaving Germany Some Jews escaped before the new laws were put into affect. When Jews left Germany, they had to sign all their property over to the Germans and had to pay a fee to get out. Many Jews were upset at leaving their country because they had made many important discoveries, and a lot of the musicians were Jewish. Also they had helped in many of Germany’s wars.
Who stayed? Only a few Jews stayed in Germany. These Jews followed all the rules that Hitler had put on them. The Jews weren’t allowed to have a radio, they weren’t allowed to ride bikes or go out after dark. Soon these Jews would be collected and put into Ghettos.
What were the Ghettos Like? Ghettos were only temporary. They were only set up to hold captured Jews. Life in these Ghettos was not great. It was a living nightmare. People had no water to bath and rarely had room to stretch. As the Nazis took over more territory more and more Jews were put into the Ghettos.
More on what the Ghettos were like It was not very sanitary in these Ghettos. The toilets would be clogged and the only place to go to the bathroom was in the streets. The people who lived in the streets had no water, no food, no clean clothes and had to take stuff from buildings in order to have fire.
Kids began to smuggle stuff in order to keep their families alive and well. They would climb over the fences and take stuff from a passing apple truck or trade something of their own for food. Germans on the other side would beat the children who stole stuff. Soon the Germans would come and take Jews to do other things. Like dig their own graves for when the Germans shot them.
Jews would eventually die in these ghettos because of starvation and lack of medical assistance. The people who died would be left in the streets for weeks at a time because the Germans wouldn’t come and take the bodies of those who were dead. The Germans would appoint a few people as heads but it never worked because usually the Jews had to wait weeks for goods to come in.
This Slide is dedicated to Pictures of the Jews in Ghettos Although you cannot see this picture, this shows where Ghettos were.
