Description

Front: Black and white photograph of men scrubbing the street.Back: Typewritten and handwritten information about the image.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Wire photo from 1941 with information attached verso: "Forcing the Jews to scrub the street like this was a Nazi idea to embarrass them. The Nazi program also aims to prevent the Jew from transferring their wealth abroad." "Embarrass" is clearly a trivialization and understatement of the burgeoning Nazi program to persecute, humiliate and murder Jews throughout the 1930's.
