3088WARSAW GHETTO, THEWARSAW GHETTO, THE1969b & w52 min16mm Warsaw, Poland, 1940: In an area measuring one square mile, over a half-million Jews were crowded ten or more to a room and received one-quarter of the rations allowed for Germans and half that allowed for Poles. Despite epidemics, they were put to work for the Reich in factories within the ghetto walls. Heinrich Himmler kept an album documenting the life and death of the Jewish people. It consisted of photographs and cinefilms taken by cameramen of the German Army, the S. S. and the Gestapo. These materials form the nucleus of this film and document the ghetto's existence from its creation to its flaming destruction by the Germans in 1943.
