Lethal gas was a Nazi method for
mass murder. The gas chamber
was first used in December 1939.
This was when a SS special
commando used carbon monoxide
to kill Polish mental patients.
The first chambers were put up at
Beyzec concentration camp.
When the prisoners were led into
them, they thought they were
taking showers. But the sad
reality is they were walking into
their own death. Over 2,500
people fit into one chamber . It
would only take an hour to kill

The Ghettos were run down houses
for the Jews. The ghettos were
created for separating the Jewish
people from the rest of the population.
There were several major ghettos:
Lrakow, Lvov, and Lodz. When the
Jews lived in these ghettos, they were
forced to wear badges. The Jewish
people were made to live in filth and
there was lots of disease that existed in
these ghettos. They were always
hungry because there was little or no
employment for the residence. Jewish
police forces were established to
maintain order. They would often
have concerts and lectures to help
keep them connected. These events
were well attended.
