Shambles in Warsaw

September 1939. “The horrors of modern aerial warfare are forcefully illustrated by this picture of a Warsaw boy squatting miserably among the wreckage of what was his home. Scenes such as this were common all over Poland where the Nazi air force rained death and destruction on countless open towns and brought untold misery and hardship to Poland’s civilian population. In spite of constant raids, however, and the indiscriminate damage they wrought, the morale of Poland’s civilians remained unshaken.”
