Photograph of a Crowd of Expelled Jews



street, Historical Society of Poland

A crowd of Polish Jews are expelled from their homes and forced into the street. Many pack their possessions into carts.

This photograph is a copy from a collection kept in German archives during World War II. In the late 1940s, the Jewish Historical Society of Poland wanted to spread information about the atrocities that had occurred in Poland, so they had the German photographs made into prints. The donor’s father, a survivor from Poland, purchased this and ten other prints from the series to signify what happened to his family. Most had perished in the Holocaust and only two photographs of his relatives survived.
