Photograph | Photograph Number: 98093

German police execute Poles at the edge of the Uzbornia Grove just outside of Bochnia.

The original caption in Polish reads:

"From a series of Nazi crimes during the occupation of Poland

The forest near Bochnia
Execution in the forest...

Published by the Jewish Historical Commission of Katowice"

This widely circulated copy print (see WS# 73831) is one of twenty-six photographs 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 are likely later additions to the album.
