Ghettoization Process

The segregation of Polish Jewry culminated in the confinement of the Jews to ghettos, beginning in the spring of 1940. The vast majority of the ghettos were concentrated in occupied Poland (the Generalgouvernament), and also in territories in western Poland, which had been annexed to Germany. The nature of the ghettos and the extent of their isolation from their surroundings varied from region to region. In some cases there were even radical differences between the ghettos.
