This item is related to one of the saddest chapters in our history and is offered with the thought that preservation and recognition are vital to remembering the past. "Those who ignore the past are doomed to repeat it". There are innumerable fake representations of such armbands but this is guaranteed authentic. Ghetto Gemeinde was the self governing council installed to regulate the day to day life inside of the nazi established ghettos of Poland. Real examples are very hard to find as those who wore these armbands rightfully wanted to destroy them immediately after liberation. Condition is rough as shown in attached images. Lest we forget this terrible part of our history.
