This item is a photograph of a meeting of the Judenrat of Lodz Ghetto. It is probably a meeting with a group of Czech Jews that were brought from Prague to the Lodz ghetto in the late fall of 1941. Likely pictured in the photograph: Mordechai Chaim Rumkowski, Aron Jakubowicz, his wife Regina, Dora Fuks, Jozef Rumkowski, Dawid Warszawski, Baruch Praszker, and Max Szczesliwy. The photograph features a room full of men and women, all wearing a Magen David (Star of David) on their jackets. The photo was taken in a hall, which was formerly a theatre.
