Photograph | Photograph Number: 20689

A well-dressed woman poses on a commercial street in the Warsaw ghetto.

Joest's original caption reads: "She looked cultivated, this lady in fancy dress with a purse under her arm and a roll of paper in her hand. I do not know what I thought at that time: may I actually photograph you? Strangely enough I did not think this when I saw poorly dressed people."
