The mechanism of an early 20th century Fotoplastikon photographed in Warsaw, Poland, on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. It is a cylindrical device where 2D pictures can be seen in 3D through special binoculars. A show of some 48 images from the Warsaw ghetto has opened at the Fotoplastikon. The pictures, mostly taken between 1940, when the ghetto was established, and 1945 when only a sea of ruins remained of it, show people, vendors and beggars in the streets, a bazaar and the Jewish cemetery. The show at the old-fashioned Fotoplastikon opened as part of observances marking 70 years since a few hundred poorly armed young Jews put up a fight against Nazi Germans who were taking ghetto residents to death camps. The revolt was crushed in May 1943 , the ghetto was razed to the ground and its residents killed. (AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski)
