Messages scrawled by Jewish prisoners on a wall inside Fort IX, shortly before their execution.

George Kadish photographed the writings on the walls of the prison after liberation. One message reads: "Hirsh Burstein was brought here July 7, 44. We are burning bodies and awaiting death. Brothers, Revenge! We are dying courageously for the people." Another inscription reads "Hayat Isaac from Marseille, arrived May 18, 1944."
