Dr Enno Lolling (2nd from left) was the director of the Office for Sanitation and Hygiene in the Inspectorate of Concentration Camps. Among his other bestialities, he ordered prisoners killed and their tattoos preserved to send to Berlin. He also authorized experiments to shrink cadaver heads. He thankfully committed suicide in 1945. On the right of the photo is Rudolf Hoess, the notorious Auschwitz commandant.
"We Workers Have Awakened", a Nazi Party 1932 Reichstag election poster. Note the malignant depiction of a stereotyped Jew whispering into the ear of a Communist. Also darkly amusing is the mini-poster held by the Communist, which reads, in part: "The Bigshots in Ham [i.e., with plenty of food]", but "The Common People in Shit", in German a rhyme of "Speck" and "Dreck", the latter a Yiddish-tinged word in place of "Scheiße".

Herbert Kappler was the SS SD chief in Rome during WW2. A war criminal, he was sentenced to life in prison by an Italian court. In 1977, suffering from terminal cancer, he was smuggled out of hospital by his wife in a large suitcase. He was smuggled into West Germany and died the following year, aged 70.

German executioners enjoy the death of a Russian nurse. Smiles all round. Murderer nearer the camera seems disinterested, cigarette in hand. Most likely, the photographer said "Cheese!" Callous beasts.

Men of the Wermacht view the hanged corpse of a young girl. Probably a Russian resistance member (though she conspicuously wears a red cross band on her right arm), she likely was tortured and raped before her death. Of the soldiers in the picture, only the one nearest the camera is unsmiling, and his face betrays only indifference for his victim. Some of these men probably had daughters the same age as the girl they hanged. A sad reminder for all of us of what "humans" are capable of doing.

“Charlie Haughey shot nearly 2,000 images between March 1968 and May 1969 before taking the negatives home. And there they sat, out of sight, but not out of mind, for 45 years, until a chance meeting brought them out of dormancy and into a digital scanner...When the digitization hit 1,700 negative scans.” http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2013/03/a_soldiers_eye_rediscovered_pi.html

As the war took a turn from worse to disastrous, Nazi propaganda warned German civilians what would happen if the Russians came. The tragic irony is that this image wasn't too far removed from what did happen once the Red Army came in contact with the German population.

German propaganda about the Soviets. Trigger warning, pretty graphic. Don't know how I feel about this, my (German) mom grew up terrified of the Soviets after what they did to her grandmother in a "refugee" camp.

Unidentified senior Japanese officer is shot by Chinese executioner (This is not General Tani Masuo, as originally posted,the man who oversaw the Nanking Massacre, and was executed in March 1947 after being found guilty of war crimes by the war tribunal set up by Chiang Kai-shek. Masuo’s executioner was a Chinese veteran who survived the Battle of Nanking.)

General Tani Masuo, the man who oversaw the Nanking Massacre, was executed in March 1947 after being found guilty of war crimes by the war tribunal set up by Chiang Kai-shek. Poetically, at least in the eyes of the tribunal, Masuos executioner was a Chinese veteran who survived the Battle of Nanking.
This is one of the most widely circulated photos of Nazi war crimes. A German army officer delivers finishing shots to executed hostages in Pancevo, Yugoslavia. Contrary to postwar claims, the regular German army was as deeply involved in the death of civilians as the SS and other murderer formations.

Japanese soldiers play with a "doll"-- a human baby impaled with a bayonet. Bestiality at its most brutal. I wouldn't have hesitated to shoot both of these bastards in places that would have made them die a slow death.

Chinese baby brutally murdered by Japanese soldier - Nanking Massacre - Most experts agree that at least 300,000 Chinese died and 20,000 women were raped, including infants & young children who were cut open to allow Japanese soldiers to rape them. Thousands of victims were beheaded, burned, bayoneted, buried alive, disemboweled.

Hitler during the invasion of Poland grabs a quick bite at a field kitchen. A thermos next to his plate most likely contains tea. Hitler wasn't friendly with coffee.
