Thierschstrasse 7

In western Europe, there were no Jewish ghettos, instead the Nazis established Jewish houses and Jewish camps (german Judenhaus and Judenlager) in major cities. Starting in spring 1941 Jewish residents were forced to leave their homes and move into a Jewish house or a Jewish camp. Both houses and camps were temporary collection points for Jews before being deported to Eastern Europe. One such house was on Thierschstrasse 7 in Munich. Nazis began deporting the Jews of western Europe to ghettos and extermination camps in eastern Europe in September 1941.

Current status: Preserved (2010).

My comment:

Already after the outbreak of war, local Nazi leaders established Jewish houses where Jews were forced to move to while waiting for new directives. However, it is wrong to call them ghettos.
