More on the Child of Yesterday

(Note: This is the photograph to which I referred in yesterday's post. It is called "The Only Flowers of Her Youth," and it was taken in Warsaw in 1938 by the photographer Roman Vishniac. I won't make any other comment -- I think the picture speaks volumes for itself.)

It is haunting.

The story I heard was that a woman was crying when seeing the photograph in Florida almost 40 years later. When asked, she stated that she was the child in that photo. I can not verify, but I have heard from a student of Vishniac's that he met the woman several years later.
