Food in the camp

Work camp Gleiwitz, Camp for forced labor
winter 1943 - 1944

The Poles from the ghetto managed to find bits of garlic which we spread on bread for the taste.

After the war broke out, the Jews were moved en masse to ghettoes. The largest groups were in Warsaw (approximately 460,000 inhabitants in 1941) and in Lodz (approximately 160,000 inhabitants). Those people who survived the extremely inhuman living conditions and the hunger in the ghettoes were eventually deported.  Men who could still work were sent to work camps. The rest died in the extermination camps.
