1942

Hope and Despair in the Warsaw ghetto

Warsaw Ghetto, June 1942: Chl‚odna Street (looking West) from the intersection with Żelazna Street. The street was Aryan and above the street one can see a wooden bridge connecting Small and Big Ghetto. In the back the Chl‚odna 25 building.

What hope do we have that it will not be carried out? Over half a million Jews who used to live in Poland have already been murdered; some by hunger, some by disease, some by the Nazi sword. Jews have been deported from hundreds of small communities, and no one knows their whereabouts, simply because they were killed along the way and never reached a new destination.
