A destitute child begs on a street in the Warsaw ghetto.

Photograph | Photograph Number: 32324

A destitute child begs on a street in the Warsaw ghetto.

Joest's original caption reads: "I know this was on a 'good street,' meaning a central street with many pedestrians. The child had a wound on his nose, but otherwise looked in good health. However, he was barefoot, as were almost all [of the children], except for the boy next to him with his thin sandals who did not beg."
