The War Illustrated No 8 Vol 1 November 4th 1939

November 4th, 1939 The War Illmtrated. 231 Child Victims of Hitler’s War of Frightfulness The full fury of the Nazi onslaught from the air is illustrated in the two photographs in this page. In one, taken in Praga, a suburb of Warsaw, a little figure of such infinite pathos as to move the stoniest heart sits in stunned bewilderment amidst the ruins of what was once his home. The air raid of which he was a victim destroyed twenty blocks of dwellings inhabited by the poorest class. In the other picture another child victim has managed to save one treasured possession from the horror that has come unon him— his canary. Photos. WorldWide
