"Great distress, deportation from hospital." - Henryk Ross
According to the Ghetto Fighters' House Archives, Jewish policemen are catching deportees trying to escape from the hospital at 36 Lagiewnicka Street, which was an assembly point for deportees. The photograph was taken on September 10, 1942, during the "Gehsperre" [German: "curfew"] Aktion in the ghetto.
