Leszek Grzywaczewski photographs
The collection consists of photographs depicting the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943 including burning buildings, Polish firefighters, German SS officers, and captured Jews being marched down Nowolipie Street prior to deportation. Also included is one post-war photograph depicting Hungarian troops preparing to execute Lajos Remenyi-Schneller, who was tried and convicted in 1946 of collaborating with the Nazis.
All the Warsaw photographs were taken by Leszek Grzywaczewski, a Polish firefighter whose unit was called to the fire, but not allowed to intervene with buildings inside the ghetto.
