Special Feature! Bernice Eisenstein on Contributing to Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross

When Polish Jewish photographer Henryk Ross (1910-1991) buried 6,000 negatives of his photos of the Lodz ghetto in 1944, he feared they would be the only record of the Polish Jewish people who were being systemically murdered in the ghetto during WWII. And indeed, only 10,000 of the more than 200,000 Jews who passed through the Lodz ghetto would survive the War.

Ross was an official Lodz ghetto photographer from 1940 to 1944, taking identification card photos for the ghetto's constantly swelling Jewish and Romani population, as the Nazi regime packed more and more people into the area.
