Lot 661

A Lot of Differing Getto Views Under German Occupation, c. 1940's. Lot of six photos with assorted people scenes. Two with bearded Jewish men, in jackets or overcoats, wearing armbands -- one with German inscription on back; the other simply "1941," and thought to be at Litzmannstadt by the consignor. Two more, with market scenes: one a view of the old town, with married women in shawls, and rather old looking children all barefoot, soldiers in the background, "Rybin" in pencil on back; the other with seated men in the middle of the street, inscribed "Winter 1940, Jews in the market place." Along with these, an unusual photo of a bearded jew pumping air into the rear tire of soldier's BMW motorcycle. Lastly, a view of a German soldier striding down a populated, soggy street. On the back, in German, "The ghetto in our area." Photos all very fine or better. Sizes range from: 3 x 2-1/4" to 3-1/2 x 2-3/8". Some interesting shots in this group. Lot of 6 pieces.
Estimated Value $225-UP.

Realized $132
