    Event History
    One photograph from a published report entitled "Maladie de famine: recherches cliniques sur la famine executees dans le ghetto de Varsovie en 1942" [The Disease of Hunger: Clinical Research on Starvation Undertaken in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1942]. The research on the effects of starvation on children and adults was conducted by several Jewish physicians employed in the Berson and Bauman Jewish Children's Hospital on Sliska Street in Warsaw. (From 1940-1942 this hospital was located in the small ghetto.) The published report took the form of a series of articles by individual doctors who conducted their research independently. The report, which included photographs and testimonies, was smuggled out of the ghetto in 1942 or 1943. All of the participating physicians, with the exception of the editor Prof. Emil Apfelbaum, perished during the war. Apfelbaum died while the book was in press in 1946.
