Residents of the Warsaw ghetto attend a funeral in the ghetto cemetery. In the foreground is a mass grave that has just been covered over.

Joest's original caption reads: "This huge grave pit had just been covered over. The earth was still settling and had fissures in it. In the background a funeral for an individual grave was taking place."
