Unframed stretched canvas. Image of woman carrying 2 buckets walking with child in foreground, barracks and buildings to either side and in the background. In the foreground of this painting is a woman carrying two buckets with a toddler following close behind. They are walking between two barracks along the dirt pathway. In the distance are three children and what appears to be laundry drying on a clothesline. It is unclear what these buckets may have been used for, perhaps to carry water back to the barracks from the latrine and shower building. It is known that in most of the assembly centers and concentration camps water, in particular hot water was a precious commodity. There were often long lines to use the shower and laundry facilities, so that it is possible that this woman was taking a private supply to her barrack.
