Dora Fobert, Untitled, ca 1942,

From the Archive of Adela K.
Dora Fobert, b. 1925

Photographer, Warsaw Ghetto, 1940–42.

Assisted Jakub Boim, official ghetto photographer.

Began her own series of portraits of women in the Warsaw Ghetto shortly before being deported to Treblinka, August 1942.

These photographs were saved by Adela K, a survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto.
They were taken in a studio in the ghetto on Chlodna Street in June 1942.
Because of the limited supply of photographic chemicals, they were never properly fixed and remain unstable under natural light.
