Reproduction of an 8mm video still 

United States forces discovered 8mm footage, from which this still is taken, in SS barracks in Augsburg, Germany. This photograph comes from Lwów, Poland (present-day Lviv, Ukraine).  Of the more than 200,000 Jews who once occupied that city, only a few hundred were alive at the end of World War II.  The identity of the young Jewish woman depicted in the photograph is unknown.
