1943: German forces begin "liquidating" the Jewish ghetto in Kraków, Poland. More than 8,000 Jews deemed able to work were transported to the Plaszow labor camp. Another 2,000 Jews deemed by the Nazi forces as unfit for work were killed in the streets of the ghetto over the course of two days. Any remaining were sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp or to the Belzec extermination camp.
