Forbidden Photographs of the Warsaw Ghetto

During the summer in 1941, Willy Georg (a German soldier stationed in Warsaw), was given a pass that allowed him to enter the Warsaw Ghetto – an area of 3.4 km2 (1.3 sq mi) into which over 400,000 Jews had been packed. The Ghetto was deliberately created by the Germans as a place for Jews to slowly died from hunger, cold and disease. Georg took his Leica camera and started to take pictures. Unfortunately, the Gestapo didn’t like what Georg was doing, so they confiscated the film out of his camera. By then, however, he was on his fifth roll of film. The first four rolls remained hidden in his pocket.

The photos were taken before the Jews from the Ghetto were shipped to the Nazi concentration camp at Treblinka in 1942, and long before the Warsaw Ghetto was completely destroyed by the Germans after the fall of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943. The photos were published over 50 years later in a book called “In the Warsaw Ghetto: Summer 1941“. Every page is an portrait of people who almost certainly died before the war ended.

I’m not afraid of anything. For me and many of my friends it’s abvious
that Nazi = Germany, so you comment shocked me a bit. I’ve changed Nazis to Germans to avoid further confusions even though this article is tagged with “German camps” and I used “German” a few times at the beggining. It’s sad to read what kids these days know about World War II.

It wasnt all germans.
It was a select group of germans that were involved in this horiffic crime. And hitlar was not a german he was austrian. It isnt fair to generalize all germans in this artical.
Yes my family are german and come from the old country but were in no shape or form part of this.

All Germans will always be a part of this, it is a curse on your people till the end of time. It’s part of being a German, part of your culture now. Nazi officer Wilm Hosenfeld said it best: “With horrible mass murder of the Jews we have lost this war. We have brought an eternal curse on ourselves”
