The term "ghetto" originated in 1516 where Venetian authorities compelled Jewish people to live. In World War II German soldiers forced the Jewish people to live in segregated, miserable conditions. This gave a new definition to the word "ghetto."

The ghettos isolated Jews from non-Jews. There were over 1,000 established ghettos in Poland and the Soviet Union alone. The Germans created ghettos in order to segregate the jews; however the plan was then taken to a new level. The seperation of Jews from the rest of the society was all a part of the "Final Solution." The Final Solution was a plan to exterminate all of the Jewish people. Unfortunately, the plan did end up working. The ghettos were only the beginning of what was to come.

Stereotypes:1. People consider ghettos to be a poor community.2. Jewish people are unweatlhy because they couldn't afford to live outside of these areas.3. They were blamed for many sicknesses, such as the black plague. 4. They scammed people. 5. They were discriminated against because they did not believe in the same things that their socieyty believed in.
