A young boy carrying a bowl of soup, holding food ration tickets.

According to Solly Ganor: "A five-year-old boy receives hot soup for the family from the ghetto soup kitchen. His father was murdered in the beginning of the war and the mother had to take care for the smaller children. The boy became the provider of the family. I saw him often standing at the corner trying to sell what was left of the family possessions. He was shot trying to escape from the Germans during the "Children's Action" on March 27, 1944."
