They have republished the sixth section of Holocaust Explained, “what were the ghettos and the camps?” This now features revamped content on what ghettos and camps were like, how they were developed and what life was like for those imprisoned in the camps. Included are original documents and photographs from the Wiener Library archives, including their digital copy from the Arolsen Archives, formerly known as the International Tracing Service (ITS).
