    Gates to Hell - Nazi Death Camps is based on the web manager’s more than 30 year’s of research into the topics of World War 2 and the Holocaust.  The site provides brief descriptions of some of the main camps, Auschwitz, Sobibor, Treblinka, Belzec, and Bergen Belsen. 


    Aktion Reinhard Camps is dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of unknown Jews and thousands of Romany who perished in the death camps of Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka.

    The official site of the Terezin Fortress, Ghetto, and Museum


    The Red Cross was in Terezin, which was disguised by the Nazis to appear as a Model camp.


    The Jewish Quarter in Prague was named Josefov.





    The Official site of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum  in Oswiecim, Poland is pretty extensive.  It will tell you all you need to know about this place.  It has maps and pictures.  It even has directions should you wish to visit.

    Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation offers SURVIVING AUSCHWITZ, Five personal Journeys.


    In  Krakow, Poland the Ghetto was called  Kazimierz.


    The Warsaw Ghetto has held fascination for me since reading the book The Wall, by John Hersey.  More recently, I read Mila 18, by Uris and finally Words to Outlive Us - Eye Witness Accounts from the Warsaw Ghetto, edited by Grynberg.  The Warsaw Ghetto had the largest population of any ghetto in Poland and had the largest and most noteworthy uprising. When the Library opens click on Ghettos, then the Warsaw Ghetto and go about your search. My fascination for this topic led me on a special search and I devoted extra attention to it.  I came up with a multitude of links.  You will find curriculum specific to issues of the Warsaw Ghetto, the uprising, key personalities, pictures and recommended readings.  You can get a good start at understanding life in the Ghetto and learn how to develop instructional strategies appropriate for your grade level at a Specific Study on the Warsaw Ghetto.


    Don’t confuse the Ghetto Uprising with the Warsaw Uprising of those outside the ghetto.  This site is way cool and has some video clips.




    The State Museum at Majdanek has a nice site with brief descriptions of what is there.


    This is also worth a peak for the pictures and eye witness accounts. Click on pictures, once inside.


    A pretty thorough review of Majdanek can be found on the Scrapbookpages.
