A group of elderly Jews from Subcarpathian Rus sit alongside the train on the ramp at Auschwitz-Birkenau. In time these people will be put on trucks and driven to the gas chamber.

Sitting next to the train on the left are Lili Jacob's maternal grandparents, Abraham and Sheindele Jacob.

Seated on the ground at the far left is Henryk Naftoli Herz Adler. He is wearing a handkerchief to cover his face because his beard was forcibly cut off. Seated in front of him is Samuel (Sandor) Ben Yehuda Kohn.
