Description
 
The outbreak of World War II in 1939 created the abnormal conditions which enabled the Nazi leaders to translate their monstrous ideology of the "final solution" into gruesome reality.  In its preliminary phase, European Jews were economically exploited, physically underminded and psychologically harassed.  But, by and large, they were allowed to live, and to a degree their forced coexistence in overpopulated, sealed off ghetto districts (such as Warsaw) helped to strengthen the very cultural ties the Nazis sought to stamp out.

Documenting and preserving Jewish Ghetto life during those brutal years are the 206 extremely rare and historically significant photographs which comprise this collection.  Ironically, these highly evocative and sympathetic views were originally taken by German army photographers and were intended for later use as anti-Semitic propoganda. Yet, these photographs accomplish the exact opposite.  The courage, despair, struggle, tears, fleeting laughter, and insistent humanity of an oppressed people in barbarous circumstances emerge from these images in clear and truthful defiance of the photographer's original intentions.
