MFH SPECIAL EXHIBITION

The Jewish Ghetto


   
           

 

An exhibition of photographs, third-person accounts and personal experiences from those who once lived in a Jewish ghetto during World War II.


When we hear the word "ghetto" in reference to Jewish history, we most often think of the time during the Second World War when Jews were forcibly relocated to small areas of a town or city where they lived under deplorable conditions. These ghettos for Jews were often a "stepping stone" to their final extermination; from these ghettos, Jews were frequently deported to concentration camps.

Please use the "Ghetto Entrance" sign link to enter the exhibition.
