Photograph by Arnold Tolchin, January 8, 1948


Family evicted from their home and forced out in the snow... Michael and Florence Raschke, of Chicago, are pictured with their children-left to right- John, Patricia, Michaeline and George, as they huddled around a fire, to keep warm after being evicted from their four room apartment. All their belongings are seen in the background, covered with some rugs. Mr. Rachke spent the night guarding the family possessions while Mrs. Rashke and the children spent the night with a relative and kind neighbors.
