AMSTERDAM — Two teacups sit on the windowsill of an Amsterdam apartment. Behind them, out the window and across the street, can be seen a blurry crowd of men, women and children who stand nervously, with bags packed on the sidewalk. It is June 1943, and this is a photograph of Jews who have been rounded up and are awaiting deportation to Nazi concentration and death camps.
