In 1943, SS General Jurgen Stroop compiled a report to Himmler on the destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto, which he personally had seen to earlier. Originally titled â€œThe Jewish Quarter of Warsaw is no more!â€, and commonly referred to as â€œThe Stroop Reportâ€, the report also included many photographs with captions in Gothic script. Among them was the above photo titled â€œForcibly pulled out of dug-outsâ€ (one of the best-known pictures of World War II.) The photo of a young unknown boy with his hands up being driven from the Warsaw ghetto has served as a touchstone for everyone. In reality, the children played an important role inside the Ghetto; they begged everywhere - in the Ghetto as well as on the â€˜Aryanâ€™ side. Six-year-old boys crawled through the barbed wire under the very eyes of the gendarmes in order to obtain food. Often a lone shot in the vicinity told that another little smuggler had died in his fight with hunger. The Stoop Report was later used as evidence at the Nuremberg Trials, and to convict and hang Stoop of war crimes. Nearly 400,000 Jewish men, women and children had been sealed into the Ghetto in 1940 - the prelude to the Final Solution, which murdered almost all of Polandâ€™s three million Jews.
