Forced Deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto
The Nazis established the Warsaw Ghetto in October 1940 in the occupied Polish capital of Warsaw. It was the largest ghetto in Nazi-occupied Europe, housing over 400,000 Jews in extremely cramped and unsanitary conditions. The forced deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto, known as the Grossaktion Warsaw, began on July 22, 1942, as part of the Nazis’ “Final Solution” – their plan to systematically exterminate the Jewish population.
