On the 70th Anniversary of the Execution of Sophie Scholl, 22 February 1943 - Sophie Scholl was a German woman executed by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets. Prison officials, in later describing the scene, emphasized the courage with which she walked to her execution. Her last words were: "How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to offer themselves up individually for a righteous cause? Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go."

HIRH Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and HH The Duchess of Hohenberg. Died: June 28, 1914, aged 50 and 46 . Their assassination sparked WW1. The couple had a joint funeral mass. As a final show of their unequal rank, the Habsburgs placed Sophie on a bier that was 18" lower than her husband's, and the gloves indicating her former status as an Imperial lady-in-waiting were placed on her coffin, slighting her even in death. The Archduke is interred with his wife in Artstetten Castle, Austria.

This is an enormously evocative image, taken on the fierce westward offensive of the Belorussian front in the summer of 1944 by the Russian war photographer Emmanuil Yevzerikhin (1911-1984). It is entitled “We will stand to the death”. The composition takes into account the stalwart verticality of the wounded but decorated artillery man in the foreground, the howitzers aimed high for distance, and the expanse of cloudy sky, which symbolically leaves open whether it is darkening or clearing.

Amputations in the United States Civil War . While the US Civil War was the first time that the survival rate of people who needed amputation was over 50% (in large part due to the contributions of Joseph Lister and chloroform), artificial limbs have been known to have been around since at least the Late Egyptian Dynasties.

German soldiers, date unknown. The reality of War. Many soldiers on both sides were little more than kids. Thrown into uniform and given scant training, they were forced to endure combat and conditions that eventually broke even the hardest of the hard-hearted. They also died in droves. Just because they fought for Germany didn't necessarily mean they were Nazis or held Nazi views. The Concentration Camps were Hell, no doubt, but during WWII, Hell stretched in every direction.
