Life was terrible. you were under Nazi rule. The Jews in the ghettos were completely dependent on the Nazis and the Judenrat (Jewish council) for food, water and medication. so many people died of starvation, thirst, and disease. It was always overcrowded. Fear of being murdered or deported was constant. Everyday more and more Jews were sent to death camps.
