Armed With A Camera and a Gun, She Fought The Nazis

Fri, 06/04/2021 - 10:45am

On the day that Faye Schulman’s parents and siblings were killed, along with almost all the Jews of her Eastern Polish town of Lenin, Schulman (then Faigel Lazebnik) was pulled aside by a Nazi officer.

The Nazi official had been to Schulman’s studio a few weeks previously. After invading the town in 1942, the Nazis had ordered the talented young photographer to take photographs—both to document their activities in the town and to provide their officers with vanity portraits.

Schulman remembered the photo session with the Nazi who now pulled her aside.
