Ghettos were poor streets in which Jews dwelled in. They were set up by Nazis to segregate Jews from the rest of the population. These ghettos were designed to be temporary, each one having a different length of time. In these ghettos, most of the population died due to starvation, disease, or were murdered by Nazis.
The Germans had created more than 1000 ghettos in German-occupied territory. Inside these ghettos, Nazi officials gave Jews identifying badges, armbands to distinguish them. Nazi authorities protected these ghettos. Jews were assigned to forced labor. These nightmares were finally destroyed in the late 1944.
