Group portrait of Jewish and non-Jewish children on a school outing in Oswiecim, Poland.

According to the donor, the boys wearing round dark caps are from Orthodox Jewish homes; the ones with flat caps are from less religious Jewish homes; and the ones with the four-cornered caps and without head covering are not Jewish. The site of this outing was later Birkenau, part of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
