SS-Standartenführer Joachim Peiper (right), serving with SS-Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler on the Eastern Front, is photographed in conversation with another officer probably in 1943. Peiper, adjutant to Heinrich Himmler between 1940 and 1941, was Himmler's protege and one of the most aggressive young panzer commanders of WW2. He survived the war and was murdered in France in 1976.

David Kenyon Webster - Eindhoven September 1944 ♥ "Stop worrying about me joining the parachutist to fight, I intend to fight. If necessary, I shall die fighting but don't worry about this because no war can be won without young men dying. Those things which are precious are saved only by sacrifice." - Webster in a letter to his mother p.55 Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose

Arriving at Auschwitz, children and their mothers, along with the old and infirm, were taken directly to the gas chambers. Those exhausted by slave labor and the appalling conditions joined them, while camp doctors, including the notorious Josef Mengele, selected thousands of prisoners for cruel, crippling and life-threatening experimentation. By 1944, so many were being killed that the bodies had to be burnt on huge pyres, fueled, partly, by the victim’s own fat.
