The Warsaw Ghetto was the largest Jewish ghetto created by the Nazis during the Second World War. It was established in November 1940 and 460,000 Jews were separated from the rest of the city. Around 100,000 people died from hunger. At least 254,000 Ghetto residents were sent to the Treblinka death camp over two months in the summer of 1942. On the 19th of April 1943, Jewish combat organizations started an uprising led by Mordechaj Anielewicz. There were still 50,000-70,000 survivors living in the Ghetto area. Nazi General Jürgen Stroop was the commander of the uprising’s suppression. Almost all the insurgents were killed. The entire Muranów district was bombed into the ground. At the end Stroop gave orders to destroy the Great Synagogue calling the event “A fantastic piece of theater.” Some of the sites in the area survived the war.
