This copy print of a wideley circulated image (see WS# 43196) is one of twenty-six photographs and copy prints contained in an album found by Jacob Igra in an apartment in Sosnowiec after the war. Many of the photographs are believed to have been taken by a soldier with the SD-SIPO (Sicherheitspolizei) following the invasion of Poland in 1939. Additional photographs depict einsatzgruppen activities at sites throughout Nazi occupied Eastern Europe and may have been later additions to the album.
