The Vilna Ghetto

Question:

I'm searching for informations about the Ghetto in Wilna. At my school, the Beisenkamp-Gymnasium in Hamm (Germany), Joshua Sobol's drama "Ghetto" will be played in October 2000 and so I work with some other pupils on the historical background. We're interested in every information, exspecially in photographys, reports about the Ghetto (reports from people who lived in the ghetto, but also reports from german soldiers, SS-members...) and military introductions for the german soldiers, the SS or the SD. Also helpful for our work would be plans from the ghetto, numbers of the "prisoners" (sorry, I don't know a suitable word for it, the word "prisoners" plays it too much down) and other statistic infos. We're also interested in other adresses or internet-pages who could help us with our investigation. I thank you a lot for your help (sorry for my bad English)!!!! with antifascist greetings
