A group of destitute boys on a curb in the Warsaw ghetto.

Photograph | Photograph Number: 32328

A group of destitute boys on a curb in the Warsaw ghetto.

Joest's original caption reads: "It was striking to me how many youngsters did not wear shoes. It was already cold on this day. In the background of my photo I discovered later this Wehrmacht sergeant with his companion, a soldier. I thought to myself that he was going shopping in the ghetto, perhaps for jewelry."
