Photograph | Photograph Number: 03944

Jewish youth peer over the wall overlooking Mirowski Plac (Square) that divided the Warsaw ghetto into the small and large ghettos.

On the ladder at the wall are Ajzyk and Jakob Wierzbicki.

The apartment house in the background (located at 12 Krochmalna Street) was the home of the donor, Irving Milchberg, and his family until 1942. Milchberg crossed over to the "Aryan" side of Warsaw after the deportation of his family and became involved with a group of Jewish children and youth who supported themselves by selling cigarettes at Three Crosses Square (Plac Trzech Krzyzy). He was known as "Byczek" (Bull).
