Description

Three young boys sitting in front of a table with several books on it.

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

In the little village in Carpathian Ruthenia, where such little boys studied in a tiny school, the teacher was not paid in money. He would get a little milk from one student. Another student would bring him some wood to make a fire. A third would bring him a potato. But all this payment was not enough, not sufficient for his existence, for his wife and children.
