How did the Ghetto function in Warsaw?
The Warsaw Ghetto was run (as other ghettos were,) by councils from the ghetto population. Though the ghetto was free to chose who would be part of these councils, the Germans would liquidate one or all members if they were resistant to German orders. The councils have been the subject of controversy and will always will be as they collaborated with the Germans. The leader of the Warsaw Ghetto killed himself when he realised that he was collaborating, though his successors also had to do the same job, they did not manage to protect the Jewish population as well as he did. Any decrees or orders and criminal matters within the ghetto were expedited by the ghetto police, made up from the Jewish population, who were also responsible for ensuring that people got on the trains to their execution. Within the ghetto there was everything available, some richer Jews would still retain servants. Prices however would increase as time went on and people were reduced to selling everything for food. Eventually the only people who could afford to eat in restaurants were the people who ran the black market. There were many factories that people worked in, both inside and outside of the ghetto, though for poor wages and they were limited as to the number of people that they could employ, the factory owners though would never miss a meal. (the factories sold to the Germans). If a family did not have someone working in a factory then they would very quickly perish. There was a curfew to deter smuggling, but most guards could be bribed.

What is the Jewish ghetto?
Every city and sizable town in eastern Europe had a Jewish ghetto. This was the traditional part of town where the Jews had lived in those Christian nations. Not all the Jews still lived in that part of town anymore, necessarily, put just about all the people living in that part of town were Jews. In several cities, most famously in Warsaw, the Germans forced all Jews living in other parts of the city to move into the old ghetto, which soon became tremendously overcrowded. Fences and walls were built to enclose the ghetto, and the Jews were not allowed out, and the amount of food and medical supplies allowed in was insufficient to sustain the life of all in the Ghetto. Some smuggling and clandestine traffic in and out went on through the city sewer system. Streetcars still ran through the ghetto, but they did not stop as they transited the area, and nobody could get on or off. As Russian troops arrive on the far bank of the river across from Warsaw, the Jews of the Warsaw ghetto made a heroic uprising against the Germans, using the few inadequate weapons they had been able to obtain. They expected the Russians to come on across and soon liberate Warsaw, but the Russians waited six weeks on the far bank, as the Germans finally resorted to bringing in batteries of field artillery and air force bombers to batter the ghetto to rubble. Only after allowing the Germans time to do this did the Russians come on. For the entire Iron Curtain period of Soviet domination of eastern Europe, more than forty years after the war, it was not a good idea for a Pole to mention that he was one of the few surviving heroes of the Warsaw uprising. The Russians did not want any local heroes making leaders of themselves in the eyes of other Poles. The Russians had their own tame Poles, communists, who had spent years in Moscow before the war, carefully indoctrinated puppets and lap dogs for the Soviets, whom they intended to install as the new rulers of Poland, and that is exactly who ran Poland during the entire era of the Warsaw Pact.
Asked in Warsaw
Why did the Warsaw ghetto uprising occur?
The Nazis had put over 500,000 Jews into the ghetto in Warsaw, though starvation killed thousands each month, the Nazis began transferring more than 5,000 Jews a day to rural labour camps. Word reached the ghetto in early 1943 that the destination was actually the gas chambers at Treblinka, the newly formed Jewish Fighting Organisation (ZOB) attacked the Nazis, killing 50 in four days of street fighting and causing the deportations to halt. Heinrich Himmler sent 2,000 SS men and army troops to clear the ghetto of its remaining Jews. For four weeks the ZOB and guerrillas fought with pistols and homemade bombs, destroying tanks and killing several hundred Nazis, until their ammunition ran out and the Nazis manage to take the ZOB headquarters bunker. Many of the surviving ZOB fighters took their own lives to avoid being captured. When the battle was over the SS chief declared "The Warsaw Ghetto is no more." During the 28 days of the uprising, more than 40,000 Jews were either killed or deported. Warsaw Ghetto Uprising started April 19th 1943 and finished on May 16th 1943.

Asked in Colleges and Universities
Who ran residential schools and who were the students?
The people who ran residential schools were ran by nuns and priests. The student of the school were aboriginals of Canada (only the children). They were forced to leave there family because the purpose of the residential schools in Canada was to "educate" and "westernize" the First Nation children so that they have a more western - that is European - lifestyle. Also making the children believe in another religion.

Asked in Sports, Middle Ages
What sports did they play in schools in medieval times?
Answer School were not yet created only private tutors for the wealthy. Answer One of the really cool things about the Middle Ages is that they were not the way most people think they were. Do a little research and discover a different world! There were schools in the Middle Ages. The Byzantine Empire had primary schools at the village level, for both boys and girls, from 425 AD until 1453. The Visigoths opened schools in the 6th century, and so did Anglo Saxons. Even the Vikings ran schools, and believe it or not, a couple of the schools they ran are still operating today. I have seen records of schools, but not of sports in schools. Nevertheless, since medieval people did play sports, it is hard to imagine that people in schools did not. The popular sports of the time included all sorts of races, medieval football, lawn billiards, battledore and shuttlecock (a game reminiscent of badminton), bowling, and others.
