Its difficult to say what actually lies behind the classroom picture and the black dolls. But years ago black dolls were very popular with young girls. Several companies in pre - WW2 Germany manufactured them. The firm of August Steiner was just one of them. Maybe this is an entirely innocent picture of a group of children. And maybe it is just our perception of what went on in Nazi Germany which leads us to think that there may be a more sinister motive to the inclusion of the black dolls in the picture.
