Window Views and doors too


In this photo taken at the Warsaw Ghetto (February 1941) a child plays the violin while other children listen to him. The child stand in from of a large old wooden door and lock.

From "Music in Hell" exhibit at the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archive.

Hi Mary, I don't see the Linky...? My door+window is HERE.

This is sure a sad image of the child violinist in 1941 Warsaw in front of a locked door. These children were locked out of their childhood.

A haunting image! That was a rough time and place to be a child. My windows are posted.

My stepfather lost his entire family, survived three years in the camps, had a number tatooed onto his forearm, and lived to emigrate to the US, marry very well and live a long and happy life. You never know how life will turn out, do you?
