Dentist and conservative political activist Jim Economos found this photograph and shared it:
Czeslawa Kwoka, Poland, Catholic, 14 years old.
Red triangle: political prisoners because she was born in Wólka Zlojecka.
On February 18, 1943, in Auschwitz extermination camp killed with an injection of Phenol into the heart.
Shortly before the execution, she was photographed by prisoner Whilem Brasse.
Brasse later testified that the girl was punched in the face by a supervisor with a stick shortly before she was shot, where the hematoma on her lip explains from.
All you see is the face of a scared little girl who didn’t even speak her language and lost her mother a few days before.
It was one of the 250.000 children and minors deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Originally black and white and found in Oświęcim memorial photo, the photo was colored by Anna Amaral, a Brazilian professional photographer, impressed by the photo of Czeslawa and decided to make it in color and accessible to all.
So everyone knows and nobody forgets.
My heart is with you baby girl.
