A Notable Group of Jewish Themed Photos of World War II. Here we see the Germans and German Occupation, and the their relations with the Jews, at either extreme of the spectrum. From the more or less humane, a small picture said to be from the Lublin ghetto. Here German soldiers or policemen appear to be sharing bread with some ragamuffin children. Another, with German inscription on back, has of view of "Israel bei der Arbeit" -- seven Jews, under the watchful eyes of three German guards, doing street work in Solec, Poland. Also, a scene of an older Jewish man in Busko, gleaning straw from the street (German inscription on the back to that effect). Another picture, from uncertain local, with a winter time view of a Jewish cemetery. On the darker side, scenes which were more typical towards the end of the Reich -- four scenes of executed Jewish or Polish citizens. Two of these, a dead woman on the ground and on old woman hanging from a tree, are by the Mikhail Shoya, a war correspondent on the Ukrainian front. Lot of 8 pieces, all very fine or better. Photos range from: 2-1/4 x 1-1/2" to 3-1/2 x 2-3/8". Good archival material here.
Estimated Value $300-UP.

Realized $184
