A map of the Warsaw Ghetto at its maximum extent. As the Ghetto became depopulated, the Germans kept on decreasing the area it encompassed, eventually limiting it to the area marked as the central Ghetto. Note at the north end of the Ghetto (top of map) the Umschlachplatz, a railway terminal, from where deportations to extermination camps took place. Also, on the northeastern end of the Ghetto, the Jewish Cemetery (Cmentarz Zydowski) where those dying were buried in mass graves.
