We do not really see a ghetto on the novels, though we do see Clara Lehrs living in ghetto-like circumstances when she moves to Rexingen after she is forced to leave Stuttgart. She is visited in the story by fictional Hani and Frau Gödde and in real life she was visited by a certain Frau Fink who was the mother of Renate’s best friend. We do not know exactly what it was like there, but some descriptions of the more well-known ghettos and some descriptions of Rexingen give us some clues.
