Description

A black and white photograph of a man at a table signing a document with a woman next to him and several people lined up behind them.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Chaim Rumkowski, the controversial head of the Lodz Ghetto Judenrat, is thought by some to have aided and abetted the Nazis in liquidating the Ghetto. Others see him as a tragic figure who merely tried to delay the inevitable by employing as many people as possible -- including children -- in the workshop system he set up.
