General information about the Holocaust can be found at the following websites:

- Read the Holocaust Museum's helpful article on Nazi ghettos.
- Holocaust Timeline
- Wikipedia Article on the Holocaust

2. Ghetto Lists

The following web links may be useful for verifying the correct spelling of ghetto names, as well as the dates that those ghettos existed:

- Ein Denkmal List of Ghettos

Note that many ghettos -- particularly those that existed for a short time or held a small number of people -- may not appear on these lists. Survivors who were held in ghettos (or "yellow star houses") that are not listed may still be able to apply for ZRBG and/or the Ghetto Work Payment Program.
