4/20/2014 8:13 PM Hello Noa,

Just observing this photo, there are a couple of things that I see here that lead me to ask if this picture could have been taken before the war.

1) Happy faces.
2) Very comfortable/affluent and fashionable.
3) A child this young may not have survived the war.
4) This photo does not seem to fit a DP camp nor post war setting in Europe.

Perhaps you can see if this might have been from BEFORE WW 2.....Jo

7/4/2014 1:03 PM I agree about this, and the other photos you posted, looking like they were taken before the war. The people in these photos all look pretty healthy and well-fed, not thin like people in DP camp photos frequently did. Also, some of the other ones you posted showed a few elderly people, and it was rare for people that old to survive the war.
1/27/2015 12:55 PM I have to agree with the others. This picture was taken immediately before the war. The woman is wearing a Persian lamb coat which if by some slight chance had not been stolen from her, as a DP she would have sold it for food. The man's boots are also a luxury item.
