Graves of a Catholic woman and her Protestant husband, who were not allowed to be buried together. Roermond, NL, 1888 so sad and sweet.

Caskets that popped out of the saturated soil during the Flood of ‘94. A scene from all over Georgia.

This one kind of shocked me a bit. Is it a memorial or a mass grave? I would guess that it is a "pauper's" gravesite for orphaned/abandoned children...

One of the most-visited graves in Jerusalem belongs to Oskar Schindler, the German factory-owner and Nazi Party member credited with saving the lives of 1098 Jews during the Second World War. His grave in the Catholic cemetery on the southern slope of Mount Zion is visited by Jews, Christians and people of no religious faith

In life, German knight Christian Friedrich von Kahlbutz, felt he was entitled to any woman (virgin or wife) he wanted. When the wife of a shepherd refused him, he took his revenge on the woman's husband and murdered him. At his trial he swore an oath, "It was not I, otherwise after my death my body will not decay". Oddly, that is exactly what DID happen. Some say that the preserved state of his body is proof of his guilt while others say that it is simply a case of natural mummification.

It also has information from another M.D. and psychiatrist that has found hundreds of cases of children remembering past lives. The picture is of a woman on the right learning that she was the woman on the left in her past life. As far as soul mates, below this picture is a picture of her husband on the right and her father from her past life on the left being the same soul.

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.

Miner Boy: Children were cheap labor in the mines. This boy spent 10 hours a day in that outfit with only the light from that tallow wick lamp. He cleaned & played the part of a "canary" (kids were easier to replace than good miners). He was probably Finnish or Swedish & indentured to the company for the purpose of paying his fathers debts. The unions fought bloody battles to get these children out of the coal mines. This little guy worked (& likely died) in Utah or Colorado mines / Scott Co...

These people were in Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted. The eruption released tons of pumice, a light volcanic rock. It completely buried the town and the people. Under the pumice, the bodies were preserved. -- Taran Kalle

I have to say this is one of the beautiful post Mortem photos I have seen yet. Photo by Alice M. Boughton, ~ 1910... The woman on the left is deceased while the woman on the right looks to be holding her. They look to be sisters. This is a beautiful picture though.

The "lovely" Primwaddle Twins, Mort and Harvey, circa 1929. Their mother, Discordia's husband left after seeing the homely pair. Embittered to men, left alone to raise boys, she insisted they were girls, and got away with it home-schooling them for 17 years; until Mort learned otherwise. The teenagers murdered her in her sleep, strangled in chiffon, here eyes gouged out and replaced with doll eyes.

4.16 Friday 13th 1902: Uncle Jeb's beard - his pride and glory - ultimately was his undoing when he tripped over it and fell down the stairs, sadly ending his, and its, 12 year reign as "Champion Beard of Illinois".

Guess who? A young Stalin. Woah.

Josephene Myrtle Corbin, the Four-Legged Woman, was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee in 1868. Rather than having a parasitic twin, Myrtle’s extra legs resulted from an even rarer form of conjoined twinning known as dipygus, which gave her two complete bodies from the waist down. She had two small pelves side-by-side, and each of her smaller inner legs was paired with one of her outer legs. She could move the smaller legs but was unable to use them for walking. At the age of 19, she married ...
