The series The Warsaw Ghetto is an artistic investigation into the map of this ghetto. The research focuses on the contour line that segregates it from the city, becoming the fence of a deadly trap. This was the biggest ghetto as it packed together almost 400,000 Polish Jews. To isolate them, the Nazis constructed a three-metre high wall around the perimeter, creating conditions of extreme degradation inside: overcrowding, hunger, cold, dirt, epidemics and mass deportations towards the Treblinka slaughterhouse. Finally, in spring 1943 the Jewish resistance rose up. After almost one month of a heroic and very unequal struggle, the Nazis set the ghetto on fire and the Jews were defeated.
