The Holocaust is without a doubt one of the most horrific atrocities in human history. Millions of Jews lost their lives, and families were separated throughout Europe.

And another side of this heinous crime is that an entire period in history has been lost by those who lived in it.

As a result, the works of millions of intellectuals, writers, and artists have disappeared. But this tragic truth is what makes this story so much more amazing.

During the Holocaust, in 1944, Henryk Ross was in the Lodz ghetto in occupied Poland. Ross was a street photographer who was forced to take propaganda photos for the Nazi regime. During this time, he risked his life to document the daily life in the Lodge Ghetto so that future generations could see what was happening there.

Here are 13 amazing photos taken by Henryk Ross:
