A Permanent Picture Record of the Second Great War

The War Illustrated, Volume 1, No. 8, Page 225, November 4, 1939.

Photo: A Polish Child. 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.
