Preparation of Matzah for Passover (1945-49)
In the immediate postwar period, Jewish DPs had no obligation to work in the camps. In many camps, however, those who worked received higher food rations and additional clothing. This image shows two bakers preparing matzah for Passover in the Zeilsheim DP camp (1945-49). Photo by E. M. Robinson.
