b&w, white border. Outdoors. Four men are carrying a coffin in the street with a man walking alongside. All five men are wearing long dark coats and small black caps. The coffin is marked with a large Star of David. There are shops, streetcar rails, and people standing in the street in the background. On the left side of the photograph, in the distance one can see a streetcar approaching. Narrative: The scene is probably taking place in a ghetto in occupied Poland; the stamp at the back links the photograph to an image gallery in Lodz.
