The haunting portrait of an Armenia woman with tattoos on her face, indicates that she was ‘owned’ by someone as a forced wife and sex-slave during the years of the Armenian Genocide. "Grandma’s Tattoos" unveils the story of the Armenian women driven out of Ottoman Turkey during the First World War-Armenian Genocide.

Here is the story: Dead children tied to a tree, Village of Kobzowa (powiat of Tarnopol), 1923. Four killed Roma children tied to tree by their mentally ill mother after her husband was arrested and her Roma group dissolved. The murder took place in night of 11/12 December 1923.

Well...this is a creepy post mortem! Some other pinners say the young boy is deceased too, but I don't think so. The boy is terrified! Imagine you are this little innocent boy and you should pose with a dead grandmother who looks to be just digged up again. Ieeeeeuw and yikes!

A mother holds her newborn baby in the Kovno (Lithuania) Ghetto hospital. A Jewish star is sewn onto the child's blanket, marking the baby for probable death just minutes after he or she was born. Of the 30,000 original residents of the Kovno Ghetto, which was established in the summer of 1941, less than 10% survived.
