The Stroop Collection

The final liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto began on April 19, 1943, when the SS forces and German police entered the ghetto under the command of SS General Jurgen Stroop. The Jews, who obtained prior information about the operation, went underground and some of them turned to armed resistance. The campaign to wipe out the ghetto continued until May 16, and ended when the Great Synagogue was blown up. During the operation, at least one photographer accompanied Stroop’s headquarters, and he took some 115 photographs.
