The second collection is "The Brink of Oblivion: Inside Nazi-occupied Poland, 1939-1940." These are photos taken by Hugo Jaeger, a German and dedicated Nazi who traveled with and photographed Hitler in the late 1930's and early 1940's. On the anniversary of the official establishment of the Warsaw ghetto in October 1940, Time-Life posted this collection of 22 of Jaeger's photographs of Warsaw and Kutno (a small town about 75 miles west of Warsaw) from 1939 and 1940. There is also a link to the story of how Time-Life acquired Jaeger's photo archive.
My thanks to Jan Meisels Allen for sharing information about these photographs.
