The Battle of Stalingrad. The Germans place an 88 mm Flak gun at the intersection of Socialist and Barrikadnaya streets, facing north, in case of a Soviet counterattack.

Krakow ghetto: German Order Police and Jewish residents of the ghetto are photographed in front of the ghetto gate in Limanowskiego and Rynek Podgórski streets.
Between March 1941 and March 1943 a small section of the Podgórze district of Krakow was walled off and served as a holding pen, or ghetto, for about 15,000 Jewish residents of Krakow. The walls and gates are variously reported as having been built by forced Jewish labor or Polish contractors, probably a mixture of both. The writing above the gate reads “Jewish residential area” in German but rendered in Yiddish script.
