Europe, Poland, Krakow

The Jewish Ghetto in Kraków (Cracow) was one of five major 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 unworthy of life. The Ghetto was liquidated between June 1942 and March 1943, with most of its inhabitants exterminated at Auschwitz. Before the German attack on Poland, Kraków was an influential cultural centre for the 60,000-80,000 Polish Jews who lived there since the 13th century.
