  • The Hated Nazi SS (a major paramilitary organization, designated to "cleanse" areas of Jewish people) rounded up Jews from towns and removed them. Some were executed and buried in mass graves.

  • Other Jews were sent to German concentration camps, where they were forced to shoulder immense workloads, in conditions unfit for animals. when they were no longer able to work, or when guards wanted amusement they were gassed.

  • Still other Jews were herded into the middle of cities. A wall of barbed wired, was then built around them. These places were called Ghettos. Guards were stationed outside the Ghettos, ensuring none would escape.

  • Under the Nazi's regime, Jews were also deprived of every basic human right - they could not walk on the sidewalk, own telephones or use public transport, with only limited access to food. There were constant arrests and executions and within two months, the 35000-strong Kovno Jewish population of Lithuania, was reduced to 30000.
  • No Jews Allowed 
  • On the 15 of August, 1941, the entire Kovno Jewish population, including Val Ginsburg and his family, were crammed into a Ghetto in the middle of the city of Kaunas. They had no heating and barely any food. Now prisoners, they were surrounded by barbed wire and armed sentries, with little chance of survival.
  • Then the Nazi's unwittingly threw them a lifeline. The enforcement of slave labour enabled Val to scrounge for food while he was working in town. He stuffed potato peels, that he found in the rich agricultural landscape of Lithuania, into the deep pockets of his overcoat. He then smuggled them back into the Ghetto, where his mother cleaned and cooked them.
