The Jews in the Lodz ghetto established and ran over 100 small and medium-sized factories, in which they made a variety of products for the Germans, in return for food rations. After the deportations of 1942, the Jews in the ghetto saw their labor in the factories as a way to prove their economic viability, and thus hoped to evade deportation. In August 1944, the ghetto was liquidated and its inhabitants, including the factory workers, were deported.
