Description

A young woman in a black coat speaking with an elderly man wearing a hat.

Text by Roman Vishniac in The Vanished World: A limited-edition portfolio published by Witkin-Berley Ltd.

The grandfather was a wise man with long experience in suffering, but he could not give any advice, any help, to his granddaughter. She was strong and young and able to do work. But the boycott destroyed all possibilities. Because she was Jewish her knowledge of typing in Polish would not help.
