365 were built in all, with the smaller ones serving as waypoints to ghettos in larger cities.
The largest ones, situated in Warsaw , Lódz, Kraków, Lublin, and Lvov., contained as many as 100,000 people, and like all the larger ghettos, were walled off and heavily guarded to prevent anyone from escaping.
The Nazis' ghettos differed, however, in that they were a preliminary step in the annihilation of the Jews, rather than a method to just isolate them from the rest of society.
As the war against the Jews progressed, the ghettos became transition areas, used as collection points for deportation to death camps and concentration camps .
@ Ghettos, like the Kraków Ghetto seen in the first segment of Schindler's List, were regions of cities where Jews were confined by the Nazis, starting around 1939.

Uh, standing up and, and you, you were afraid to sit down on the floor because uh, they would, you'd get trampled.Then about towards the end of 1942 the law came out liquidating the ghetto. It was just, we were just put in like, like herrings. People just were dead and they were just standing there.Between 5,000 and 7,000 Jews remained in the ghetto that was established there.
