Photograph | Photograph Number: N10935

A painting by artist Sophia Kalski entitled "The Restaurant."

The artist writes "In the beginning December 1942, we had nothing. We sold each one of our possessions, and with the money that we received for these items, we bought food in the restaurant which was in the ghetto. The menu today was: soup and a potato. The money was enough for only one bowl, we received with it two spoons. I requested from my father that he should eat the potato because I ate two days ago, but he pushed me to eat."
