In its broadest sense, ghetto refers to any economically depressed and politically disenfranchised neighborhood in an urban center. Most often, the word is used to refer to a section of a city where the city's population of an oppressed minority is made to reside.
Ghetto in Southern Victory Edit
Using a pre-Great War law requiring blacks in the Confederate States to carry passbooks, the Freedom Party required blacks to live in ghettos within most Confederate cities. In Augusta, Georgia, the ghetto is known as the Terry (short for "territory"). Throughout the Featherston Administration, Confederate authorities encouraged Freedom Party Stalwarts to stage riots within black ghettos, and in 1942 they began relocating the residents of these ghettos to concentration camps such as Camp Determination.
In Poland, the Germans forced the Jews to live in ghettos, mainly so that they would be easier to capture and relocate to concentration camps. This process was discontinued when the Race's Conquest Fleet forced the Germans out of Poland.
Mordechai Anielewicz and Moishe Russie both originally came to prominence as leaders of the Jewish community in the Warsaw Ghetto. Mordechai Chaim Rumkowski was elder of the Lodz ghetto under first the Germans, then the Race.
