Close-up portrait of Hebrew and Yiddish author Itzhak Katzenelson in the Vittel internment camp. Because he possessed a Honduran passport, Katzenelson and his son were sent to the Vittel internment camp in France. They remained there for a year, during which time Katzenelson continued to write. In April 1944, however, both were deported to their death in Auschwitz. Vittel, France, 1943-1944.
