Photograph | Photograph Number: 23132

14- year-old Zygmunt Baum poses wearing an armband on a snow-covered street in the Bedzin ghetto.

His overcoat is part of his Furstenberg gymnasium school uniform, but the shiny buttons had to be removed on orders of the German authorities, in order to distinguish it from a military uniform. This photograph was sent in 1940 to the family in the U.S.
