Jewish Photographer Buries Photos So Nazis Wouldn’t Find Them, Retrieves Them After War Ends


    During the Holocaust, in 1944, one Jewish photographer named Henryk Ross decided to bury a box of photographs in the ground. He later returned to find the same photos which tell a heartbreaking story that continues to tell his sad story to this day.

    Ross was happy with his job as a news and sports photographers, however, Nazi forces soon invaded his home in 1939. He then adapted by taking photos for the Nazi Department of Statistics. During his time working there, he also took on a separate venture in which he photographed those who were living in death camps located in the region.

    Because he also risked a similar fate, he hit the photos until later.
