Title

Impoverished Jews 3

Description

This portrait of two Jewish women bears witness to the extent of the poverty Lodzers suffered in the World-War-I era. Though barefoot and dressed in rags, they are smiling thanks to the victuals in their baskets, which they procured for their families for dinner or to exchange for cash at the market.
