Photograph | Photograph Number: 89018

Ida Karnovski and her brother-in-law, Moshe Musel, read a letter from Pola (Karnovski) Musel (Ida's sister and Moshe's wife) in their room in the Kovno ghetto.

They received this letter one month after Pola escaped to the Aryan side. Her rescuer, Mikolas Simalis, brought letters back and forth until the ghetto was sealed more tightly in March, 1944. The photographer, David Ratner, was a friend and a member of the Communist underground.
