A picture of Hiroshima after the atomic bomb hit on August 6 1945. Approximately 70 000 Japanase died instantly.

A corpse-pit at Nordhausen. Look hard at the condition of the corpses. These men, women and children were not taken from their homes and sent straight to death. They were worked, abused, and starved for days or weeks or months before death overtook them. To survive such a protracted hell seems impossible. Yet, some did survive. Alone, of their friends, their families, their communities, a few survived. Though, to daily remember living through Hell must be a Hell of its own.
