One of the most famous pictures marking the atrocities of the Holocaust, was published in the haredi newspaper Bakehila (literally meaning — in the community), with the faces of all the women censored.

The picture, featuring a Jewish boy in holding his hands up in submission, depicts the surrender of Jews after the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, some 70 years ago.
