The Warsaw ghetto was the largest ghetto under Nazi rule, housing at its peak as many as 450,000 Jews. In this film Sheryl Silver-Ochayon presents the study unit for high school ages, “Everyday Life in the Warsaw Ghetto — 1941”, designed at the International School for Holocaust Studies. By juxtaposing rare photos taken by a Nazi soldier in the ghetto during 1941 with testimony and documentation of Jews, we get a deeper picture of the life and death within the ghetto walls.
Sheryl Silver-Ochayon is a staff member at the International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem.
