In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon. The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29.

This is maybe one of the most powerful pictures I have ever seen. The numbers on the arms are from prisoners of Nazi concentration camps. The numbers replaced their names while at the camps and they were tattooed on so that they could be easily tracked by the Germans. This is why we study history. So this never happens again.
