Photograph | Photograph Number: 80085

Polish firefighters and SS officers in the Warsaw ghetto during the suppression of the uprising.

The original Polish caption reads: "The Germans set fire to the buildings evacuated by the Jews. From a balcony on the top floor a family of five or six people jumped to their deaths. They didn't leave earlier as ordered and then they couldn't run away. We didn't help them even though technically we could have."
