Kraków Ghetto

The Jewish Ghetto in Kraków (Cracow) was one of the five main ghettos created by Nazi Germany in the General Government during their occupation of Poland in World War II. It was a staging point to begin dividing "able workers" from those who would later be deemed worthy of death. Before the war, Kraków was an influential cultural centre for the 60,000-80,000 Jews that resided there.
