Men with shovels dig pits next to the corpses of those recently executed by German police,

This copy print 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.
