Report prepared for the German government on diseases and healthcare problems in Warsaw from September 1939 though March 1942 and potential epidemic situations. The bombing of Warsaw left about 40% of the city without fresh water or functioning sewers. The report, in three parts, targets Jews as part of the problem, records statistics about the Ghetto's population, and includes charts detailing births and deaths. Also included are two photographs of Nazi officials in front of the Warsaw Ghetto. Both photographs have handwritten annotations on the reverse. Part I was cleared for release as an administrative report; Parts 2 and 3 were for official German use only.
