Light One Candle: A Child's Diary of the Holocaust

Title Five-year-old boy at soup kitchen
Description "A five-year-old boy receives hot soup for the family from the ghetto soup kitchen. His father was murdered in the beginning of the war and the mother had to take care of smaller children. The boy became the provider of the family. I saw him often standing at the corner trying to sell what was left of the family possessions. He was shot trying to escape from the Germans during the 'Children's Action' on March 27, 1944." Photo by George Kadish.
