History of the Krakow Ghetto
Posted: 27-04-2012      Category: Krakow News

The Krakow Ghetto was formed on the 3rd March 1941, one of five major ghettos to be set up by the Germans in the General Government (the occupied but unannexed territories of Poland) in the course of World War II and the Holocaust. Life in the Crakow Ghetto became increasingly bloody and hellish as the Nazi programme of genocide intensified: subject to severe overcrowding, an acute lack of food and poor sanitation, those that didn’t perish from disease or malnutrition, were deported to surrounding concentration camps or simply murdered in the streets – an action which culminated in the Krakow Ghetto Massacre of March 1943.
