The ghettos, in a sense, were a holding area for the Jews, and others captured by the Nazis. After being caught, Jews were sent to these small, marked-off sections of cities and towns, where they would be held before being deported to the concentration camps. Many who endured the extreme hardships of the ghettos believed that it was to be the worst of their sufferings. For most, it was the beginning of the end.
