The photographer Robert Wilczyński combines archival images of people and places in the Warsaw Ghetto with photographs of Warsaw today to bring back a dramatic period in the city’s history and to commemorate the Jewish community annihilated during World War II. The photographs from the Warsaw Ghetto Museum collection are accompanied by selected quotations from primary sources, including journals and diaries documenting daily life, suffering and death in the ghetto in 1940-1942.
