Workshops in the Warsaw Ghetto

In the fall of 1941, creative activity within the Warsaw ghetto had increased significantly, particularly following the arrival of several German entrepreneurs who hoped to exploit the cheap Jewish labor force that was available there. Alongside the German-owned factories that were established in the heart of the ghetto by entrepreneurs, Jewish workshops also increased their production and they began to supply their products to Polish companies, and even to the Wehrmacht.
