This picture was taken on Chlodna street. the building in the background still stands to this day (2011); the shot was probably taken from the door of the building at Chlodna 26 or Chlodna 24, where my great grandparents, Hena Skowronek and Józef Blat lived in 1939. They died in the ghetto.
The man who stays on the trolley is Hans Bonarewitz, camp number 3138. In June 1942 he successfully escaped from the camp, hidden in a crate and loaded by a fellow prisoner onto a truck which leaves the camp. Sadly he was captured ~18 days later and brought back to the KL. There he was exposed to others 7 days in his crate on the place for roll call and hanged on July 30th, 1942.
