Commentary
Jews Rounded Up in Warsaw: Warsaw, Poland. Under the threat of Nazi guns, these defenseless Jews hold their hands high and line up against a wall during a round-up in Warsaw’s ghetto. Horrible tales of torture and separation of family units suffered by the Jews at the hands of the hated Gestapo have come out of Nazi-occupied Poland. This photo was found on the body of a German officer, evidently a participant in the round-up, who was killed before Moscow, September 1942.

Technique
Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Materials
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
