Jewish school children, Mukachevo, Ukraine, circa 1935-38.

Ihave no idea why I chose this picture for Picture Of The Day. I think perhaps that I have a preconceived idea that if you see Jewish children from the late 1930s, then they are usually on their way to a concentration camp and/or probably death. However these kids are smiling and laughing and the child in the centre has an impish kind of look on her face. Not exactly what I would be expecting if I saw the photograph’s [/caption] before I saw the photograph. It just has a certain quality which I cannot put into words. Feel free to try yourselves…
