Abstract

This Record Group contains collections related to the history of small Jewish ghettos in Poland and the western part of the USSR. These three collections comprise photo-documets and correspondences illustrating the tragic fate of the local Jewish population in the German-organized and supervised ghettos.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

There are three collections, namely Mukacevo Ghetto; Wloclawek Ghetto; Bialystok Ghetto and Cherna Kapulkina Papers. The documents largely reflect the ghetto mundane life, the anti-Jewish actions and liquidations of the ghettos. These documents are in the form of photographs and correspondences

Collection Historical Note

Ghettoization became a common process of concetration of the Jewish population in the German-occupied Eastern territories. German authorities percieved ghettoization as the means of gaining control over the Jewish population until the further decision with regard to the fate of Jews would be taken by the central Nazi authorities.
