A group of newly liberated Jews pose with Soviet and American soldiers who were passing through the town of Losice.

The American soldiers had been taken captive after the Battle of the Bulge and were liberated by the Soviet army. They were on their way back to the United States via Moscow. After discovering that the soldiers were also Jewish, the Jews of Losice communicated with them in Yiddish.

Among those pictured are Salus Mordkowicz, Asher Weinstein, Boris Mordkowicz, Belcia Pinkus, Ajzce Szerc, and Berl Losice.
