    Abandoned tower on old Route 25, north of Bowling Green, OH. This was built to house water tank for livestock & people. Brick walls 18" thick helped to keep the water from freezing. The 1st floor had a boiler heated with natural gas piped from a well on the farm. There was a bathroom on the 2nd floor and an additional water tank on the 3rd floor, which caught runoff from the roof when it rained. There are many of these in NW Ohio. Often the rest of the farm is long gone but the towers remain.

    On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.

    Taken at the height of World War Two and after Adolf Hitler had taken Paris, this picture depicts Hitler surveying his conquest with his various cronies and became one of the most iconic photos of the 1940s and World War 2. The Last Jew in Vinnitsa, 1941 image: http://all-that-is-interesting.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/iconic-photographs-1940-last-jew.jpg This powerful image of the death of the last Jew in Vinnitsa, Ukraine, was found in the album of an Einsatzgruppen soldier. The name of the image comes from the label at the back of the photo, and succinctly conveys what happened in Vinnitsa: all 28,000 of the Jews living there were killed. Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, 1943 image: http://all-that-is-interesting.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/iconic-photographs-1940-warsaw-ghetto.jpg Shot in 1943, this is one of the best-known pictures of World War Two, as it depicts the terror inspired by the Nazis. The image above shows the destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto, which was the forced home to thousands of Polish-Jewish citizens. Though the most poignant part of picture is the frightened little boy in the foreground with his hands up as he is forcibly removed from his hiding place.

    I'd love to re-learn how to write shorthand. :-) It's would be a way to send almost-secret messages, since no one can read it nowadays. Texting got nothing on shorthand!
