Interesting Polish Jewish Web Sites

      I am often asked, “Where do you get all the information that you write about in your weekly column?” The answer is as varied as the columns I write. Most of the material I get comes from any one or a combination of over 1,000 books in my private library. Various web sites on the Internet provide another major source. Here are a few of the hundreds of sites I have visited in the past year during my research.

September 1, 1939 is the date on which Germany invaded Poland, starting WWII. While it should be said that the start of the war was not the start of the Shoah, which actually began with the rise of Nazism in 1933, it was a major milestone in the annals of the Holocaust. Within the first few days of the war, Germany had conquered and/or bombed much of Poland, including the capital, Warsaw.

In September 1939 the Germans started establishing ghettos in the occupied territory of Poland. Ghettos played an important role in the Jewish extermination policy. They were filled with Polish and Western European Jewish deportees. The ghettos differed in times of existence, size, internal organization, and living conditions. The Germans called them ” death boxes” (Todeskiste). The city of Lodz belonged to the Wartheland District and the Germans changed its name into Litzmannstadt.
