Lodz Ghetto Announcement, Number 327
Id no. 1999.A.128, Poster, Yiddish, German
This November 3, 1941 Lodz Ghetto announcement in German and Yiddish instructed ghetto residents to use less electricity.

The text translates in part: In order to save electricity, the use of cooking appliances is prohibited. Only 15-watt light bulbs may be used. Violators will have their current cut off."

In each ghetto, Nazis appointed a Jewish Council (Judenrat) to distribute rations, issue decrees, allocate apartments and meet German demands for workders. In matters of broader ghetto policy, the Judenrat had no power.
