Description

A group of schoolboys being taught in a classroom by an elderly teacher.

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

In Slonim, the teacher used the only medium, the only tool that works: friendship and love. And he was very successful in this.
