Photograph | Photograph Number: N10931

A painting by artist Sophia Kalski depicting children playing in the Lwow ghetto in the fall of 1942.

The artist writes "Most of the time the children were inside without an opportunity to go out, and only when there was a moment of peace, the children would play in the courtyard under the supervision of their parents. The game that they were playing was always the same--building bridges. The game itself lacked the joy of childhood. Already then, the children didn't know how to laugh."
