The USS Oklahoma is pulled upright after capsizing due to damage during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941. 21 massive GE DC motors were anchored to the shore and cables strung to the ship. It took three months to pull the ship upright. It was beached, patched up and sold for scrap, but while being towed to the US, it developed a leak. Despite the efforts of the salvors, the ship settled and finally, after many hours, rolled over and sank.

Leipzigs Deputy Mayor and Municipal Treasurer (“Stadtkaemmerer”; since 1940) Dr. jur. Ernst Kurt Lisso (* March 7, 1892; † April 18, 1945), at desk, his wife Renate Stephanie, born Luebbert (* April 12, 1895; † April 18, 1945), in chair, and their daughter Regina Lisso (* May 24, 1924; † April 18, 1945) after committing suicide by cyanide in the Leipzig New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus) to avoid capture by American soldiers of the 69th Infantry and 9th Armored Divisions as they closed in on the city. Regina Lisso wears the armband of the German Red Cross. Also found dead in the Rathaus was Mayor (“Oberbuergermeister”) Alfred Freyberg and his wife and daughter and former Mayor and Battalion leader of the Volkssturm (erroneously described as a “Volkssturm General”) Kurt Walter Doenicke as well as several Volksturm officers. The 777th Tank Destroyer Battalion's official history says the Americans overshot the Rathaus because of old maps on April 18, and the assault began the next morning on April 19. American tanks fired on the Rathaus from 7.30 to 9.10 Hours, when a captured German officer carried in a surrender ultimatum. The Rathaus commander accepted the terms at 9.30. the Americans captured one major general, 175 enlisted men, and thirteen Gestapo police. The American flag was raised over the Rathaus around 1200 Hours. The scene of the Lisso suicides was extensively photographed by Robert Capa, Margaret Bourke-White, and Lee Miller, as well as the United States Army Signal Corps. For reasons that remain unclear, the Freyberg family was not photographed.

An auxiliary Jewish police force kept order in the Lodz Ghetto and was was used by the Germans to organise the selection of people for deportation.
Jewish ghettos were sections of German controlled cities that were specifically used to hold Jewish people during the penultimate stage of the Final Solution. Being very dirty and crowded sections of the cities, the eventual transfer to "work camps" was at first seen as a welcome change for the Jewish citizens. This picture shows Jewish people being escorted out of the Lodz Ghetto on their way to death camps. http://ww2today.com/19th-january-1942-the-final-journey-from-ghetto-to-death-camp
