A well-dressed couple on the street in the Warsaw ghetto.

Photograph | Photograph Number: 32307

A well-dressed couple on the street in the Warsaw ghetto.

Joest's original caption reads: "I was amazed that in the ghetto I occasionally met "better people" like this man with his pocket hankerchief and umbrella and his fashionably dressed wife with a hat and jewelry. I asked myself how they were able to live, and a year later, I asked myself if they were still alive."
