Portrait of a Jewish youth wearing shorts in the Bedzin ghetto.

Pictured is Zygmunt Pluznik. Pluznik gave this photo to his friend, Idziek Gold, before Idziek departed Bedzin for the Ilag Tittmoning international camp. Pluznik inscribed his picture, "To my dear Idziek on the last days of our friendship." The photo bears the stamp of Ilag Tittmoning, where all personal possessions were registered and stamped upon arrival.

His mother, Dora Pluznik, and his two sisters, Mania and Rozia, were deported and killed in Auschwitz in August 1943, as were Rozia's husband and daughter.
