Old Lodz Postcard Gallery

    "[Jewish boys] for hours...wandered through the streets of Lodz. They raced down side streets and alleys, exulting in their freedom. They visited marketplaces where peasants milled among their wagons, horses, cattle, swine, poultry, sacks of grain. Jewish housewives in bonnets over shaved skulls wandered among the wagons... Jews slapped gentile palms to seal bargains; haggled, chewed kernels of grain."  

--From The Brothers Ashkenazi, by I. J. Singer
