Product Information

GHETTO METAL DISK – LODZ/LITZMANNSTADT
Stamped on one side with the Jewish star and SONDERKOMMANDO and on the other the SS runes    and 33.
(The term itself in German means "special unit", and was part of the vague and euphemistic language which the Nazis used to refer to aspects of the Final Solution (cf. Einsatzgruppen).)
Metal 40mm.
 On September 8, 1939, the city was captured by the Germans and renamed "Litzmannstadt".  In February 1940, a ghetto was created and, in April, was sealed off with wooden fences and barbed wire.  Transports arrived from many other towns elsewhere in Poland, and from Vienna, Prague, Berlin, and other cities throughout Europe, including Poland and Luxembourg.  Approximately 60,000 inhabitants were packed into each square kilometer of the ghetto.
Provisions were scarce, and famine and disease were common.  The ghetto became the main Jewish slave-labor camp for the Nazis.  Tailors and linen manufacturers made uniforms and civilian clothing.  Shoemaking, tannery, metal, electrical, furniture, and furrier workshops existed.
