Jewish Ghettos were a place for Jews to live under terrible poverty and harsh conditions. Ghettos were even considered worse than prison. There were at least 1,000 Jewish ghettos in German territories in Poland and the Soviet Union. Jewish ghettos were also used to house Jews before they went to extermination camps. Nazis began Operation Reinhard in 1942, where they sent Jews to ghettos or straight to the extermination camps.      http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_ghettos_in_Europe…
