A sign in German and Polish posted at entrance 2 to the Warsaw ghetto reads, "Area closed because of epidemic. Only through traffic permitted."

Joest's original caption reads: "I passed through this gate into the ghetto, which was forbidden for soldiers without the proper permission. The signs warned of typhus. Just behind the gate stood vendors, even children, who tried to sell trinkets."
