Photograph | Photograph Number: 64510

Portrait of an elderly, Jewish DP woman, who is knitting outside with a group of women at a displaced persons camp in Austria.

Julien Bryan described this woman as follows: "She was a grandmother in her eighties, living in an Austrian DP camp right after the war. She was alone -- almost all of her relatives had been killed in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. She was too old to be emigrated. Her past destroyed, her future without hope, she seemed to possess an inner calm that allowed no place for bitterness. I shall always remember her because she could still smile."
