Portrait of two Jewish men from Subcarpathian Rus taken upon their arrival in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Photograph | Photograph Number: 77222

Portrait of two Jewish men from Subcarpathian Rus taken upon their arrival in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

These two religious men were taken to the camp photographic laboratory in Block 26 to have their picture taken in order to document a certain "racial type". They were later sent to the gas chambers, but not before they were humiliated by having to uncover their heads.
