Description

Front: An image of a man and woman each holding the hand of a child with Nazi forces behind them in Memel, Germany. Back: Typewritten information about the photo.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
Memel, Germany. A picture which clearly illustrates the "other side" of the story in Memel. A Jewish refugee family walks through the cobbled streets of the town as uniformed Nazis in the background laugh and jeer at their misery. While Memel citizens were celebrating the return of the territory to the Reich, thousands of Jews fled in terror to Lithuania.
