What were the living conditions in the Warsaw Ghetto?

When it was first established in 1940 the conditions were deplorable and wretched. As time went on, more and more people were sent there from other parts of Warsaw and the surrounding areas, and conditions rapidly deteriorated. Famine and disease took their toll, as was the intention of the Nazis. Disease enters any area where starvation, overcrowding and indequate santitation are prevelant. Typhoid was the most common and widespread disease.

Did people call there homes flats during the holocaust?

Most people in the Holocaust did not speak English, so no they would not have called them flats, they would have used whatever the term was in their own language. Of course flats existed in the forties, but they were not as common as they are now, but at any rate the translations and texts would have been written closer to the present time, therefore they use language that we use now; hence the use of the word 'flat' do describe an apartment within a larger building.

Why were Jewish people persecuted by Hitler's regime?

Hitler and the Nazis were responsible for what later came to be called the "Holocaust" (a term not in common use when the mass murders were taking place). During the Holocaust, there was mass extermination of Jews (as well as, to a lesser but still important degree, Gypsies, people with disabilities, and political dissenters). This was what Hitler called the "Final Solution," since he believed (and many Germans went along with his belief) that all of Germany's problems should be blamed on the Jews, who only made up perhaps 5% of Germany. Among the places where Jews were murdered were gas chambers and concentration camps. These included Auschwitz-Birkenau, Belzec, Chelmno, Majdanek, Sobibor, and Treblinka. Six million Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis: men, women, children, infants--just because they were Jews. While many of us find it is amazing that such a question could be asked today, it is sad to note that in some parts of the world (especially in some Muslim countries), it is typically taught that the Holocaust never happened, even though there is a massive amount of documentation for what the Nazis did. There are also some Americans who persist in believing the Holocaust never happened. Such people are called "Revisionists" or "Holocaust Deniers."
