Photograph | Photograph Number: 32252

A destitute woman sits in the middle of a busy sidewalk in the Warsaw ghetto.

Joest's caption reads: "In the middle of the sidewalk sat this wailing woman, over whom no one troubled himself, and begged. What was astounding was that from time to time she received something even though everything was going so badly with all the others as well."
