United States Holocaust Memorial Museum      
During World War II, hundreds of thousands of Jews were confined behind barbed wire and under guard in more than 400 ghettos in eastern European countries occupied by Nazi Germany. Few survived. This history begins in the summer of 1941, soon after German troops invaded Soviet territory, including Soviet-controlled Lithuania.
