Joseph and Magda Goebbels in Italy

Joseph Stalin and Vladimir Lenin in Gorki by Unknown Photographer. Hitler's death count wasn't even close to these guys, so where are all the movies? History is as pliable as the future.

Joseph Goebbels, Magda Goebbels & Adolf Hitler in March, 1939.

Raro ver una expresión tan divertida en una imagen del 1800. Lindo

Adolph Hitler, Joseph Goebbels and one of Goebbels' daughters. The Goebbels would later commit suicide and murder all 6 of their children as the madness of the 3rd Reich collapsed around them.

Sisters 1900 - the seated girl is either deceased or near death with illness. The standing sister is holding her hand up, not holding hands with her.

    Beautiful style of photography. Not all Victorian photos were post mortem. Those using stands were not all post mortem either. They used that to steady subjects so as not to blur or ruin photographs. Photographs then had longer exposure times. People moved.

    No one's dead here (BY NOW YEAH, in photo no)....common sense n objective observation ppl....old photo doesn't equal post mortem.

  • Susan Cantrell

    Not postmortem. This would have been considered a seductive photo in Victorian times. The Flickr article that featured this is full of misinformation.

  • Christine Abanilla

    If the girl was deceased, it would take a lot more than the other girl holding her hand to keep her from slumping over. And it looks like she's holding the other girl's hand, not the other way around.

    Yeah I don't think this is a postmortem
