The last Jew in Vinnitsa, 1941 Ukraine

Nazi atrocities were committed in and near Vinnytsia by Einsatzgruppe C. Estimates of the number of victims run as high as 28,000. This included the virtual extinction of the town’s large Jewish population. One infamous photo, The last Jew in Vinnytsia, shows a member of Einsatzgruppe D about to execute a Jew kneeling before a mass grave. The text The Last Jew of Vinnytsia was written on the back of the photograph, which was found in a photo album belonging to a German soldier. - Wikipedia
