This magnificent portrait is another in the series that Struck, while serving in the German Army, made of Jewish workers in Eastern Europe. Dressed for cold weather in a heavy full length coat, it is obvious that this young man is powerfully built and takes pride in his labors. The lithograph (Rusel, 459L) on tan wove paper is in very good condition despite some faint staining outside the image. Hermann Struck signed it on the bottom left edge of the figure and titled (Jüdischer Lastträger) and dated (Lodz 19.2.15) it in the plate.
