English: Polish kid in the ruins of Warsaw September 1939. Julien Bryan caption of the image from 1958:
A BOY'S WEARINESS: Ryszard Pajewski was a study in dejection when I saw him sitting on a pile of rubble. Only nine, he had suddenly been made the family breadwinner - and there was no bread to be had. Now a truck driver, he remembers that when he saw me last, I was carrying two "boxes"-my cameras. [1]

In September 1959 Julien Bryan wrote more about it in Look magazine:

The spot where nine-year-old Ryszard Pajewski sat atop a pile of rubble in 1939 is now a smooth lawn. But a friend saw my picture of this scene and told Pajewski. He came to see me. The rubble pile had been near his home, and he had taken time out from a search for food, for his mother and brother, to rest. His father was later taken away by the Nazis, and he never returned. Pajewski, who is divorced, now lives alone outside Warsaw.
Polski: Polskie dziecko w ruinach Warszawy we wrześniu 1939 roku. Julien Bryan opisał zdjecie z 1958 roku:
Troska Chłopca: Ryszard Pajewski był obrazem troski, kiedy widziałem go siedzącego na kupie gruzu. Miał tylko dziewięć lat a nagle został żywicielem rodziny - i nie było chleba do znalezienia. Teraz kierowca ciężarówki, wspomina, że gdy zobaczył mnie ostatnio, niosiłem dwa "pudła" - moje kamery [2].
