Horrific...Young German boys with wooden clubs chase a battered and bloodied Jewish woman during the Lviv pogroms 1941
The Lviv pogroms were two massacres of Jews living in and near in the city of Lwów, the occupied Republic of Poland (now Lviv, Ukraine), that took place from 30 June to 2 July and 25–29 July 1941 during World War II. According to Yad Vashem six thousand Jews were killed by Einsatzgruppen, some Ukrainian nationalists and Ukrainian militia. During the interbellum, Lviv had the third-largest Jewish population in Poland, which swelled further to over 200,000 Jews as refugees fled from the Nazis.

The end of World War II brought many young men back from the military to start a new family and home life.
The 1940s had to be one of the most romantic eras ever! ((Well, if you want to leave out all-out world war, the Holocaust, rampant rationing and government control of every facet of life, sexism, racism, discrimination on about 20 different levels, older generations still carrying Victorian and Depression-era attitudes, a level of mental health care still buried in the Dark Ages......yeah, I guess you could call it romantic.....)) Nice picture though. I wonder how many of these fellows came back home for good, all in one piece?
The naked corpse of Helga Goebbels (1932 - 1945), oldest child of German Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, lies on a blanket in a field after Russian troops moved her and her siblings' bodies from the beds in the bunker where their parents poisoned them, Berlin, May 1945. The Russians buried the bodies but disinterred them 15 years later, burned them, and scattered the ashes in a river.

A rare picture of the actual process of burning bodies at Auschwitz/Birkenau. Taken clandestinely, and at great risk, by a member of the Sonderkommando (special detail, or special command), it shows other Sonderkommando burning the bodies of gassed inmates. Often, they burned the bodies of friends and family. Given preferential treatment during their work, they usually lasted less than a month, being gassed to prevent their giving witness to the atrocities committed at the camp.

The German army hangs three suspected partisans during the initial phase of the invasion of the USSR. On the right, two officers confer casually. Hanging people is part of the routine. Contrary to claims to the contrary, the regular German army committed atrocities and massacres on equal footing with the SS and other killing German detachments.
