A Permanent Picture Record of the Second Great War
In the course of his speech to the Reichstag on September 1, 1939, Hitler declared, "I will not make war on women and children". This photograph taken in a field near Warsaw shows that his words were once again falsified by the event. A ten-year-old Polish child kneels in anguish by the side of the mangled body of her elder sister after a Nazi aeroplane had swooped down and poured a rain of bullets on her and other girls and women working in the potato fields.
