    Photograph of SS troops arrest the Jewish department heads of the Brauer helmet factory. The Brauer "shop", of Herman Brauer, repaired helmets for the German Army, was located at 28-38 Nalewki Street and employed 2 thousand people. Their workers were probably of the last Jews to be deported from the ghetto. With the outbreak of the uprising on April 19, 1943, Hermann Brauer promised those Jewish work managers who hadn't gone into hiding, that the factory would continue to operate, and asked that they come to work. These managers received special transit passes to move freely about the ghetto, which were attached to their coat lapels. On April 24, 1943 at five o'clock p.m. the SS made a raid on the factory, rounding up the managers and conducting body searches prior to deporting them, then setting fire to the factory.
