  1. The picture titled "The Lublin Ghetto" was not taken in a ghetto. There were no ghettos in prewar Poland, of course, there were Jewish quarters, but you have to remember that ghettos were created by Germans, after they invaded Poland in 1939. None of the people on this picture wear Star of David attached to their coats, in one of the windows there is a Polish flag, so apparently this was taken before the war.
