Evading deportation from the Warsaw Ghetto

Jews are marched through the streets of the Warsaw ghetto on the way to the railway for 'deportation'.

There was one small electric lamp installed by the owners of the bakery, who had their own families among the crowd. Their children were the only youngsters in the bunker. Though the place seemed safe enough, the danger of discovery was considerable. The SS-men directing operations in the street would stop in the bakery above us, since the bakers had to provide them with food and drinks every day. The slightest noise would have betrayed us.
