In this picture, MLK Jr. calmly removes a burnt cross someone had hammered into his lawn. There's something really haunting about the way he's nimbly pulling it out of the ground while his young son stands beside him.
On 2 July 1942, most of the children of Lidice, a small village in what was then Czechoslovakia, were handed over to the Łódź Gestapo office. Those 82 children were then transported to the extermination camp at Chełmno 70 kilometers away. There they were gassed to death. This remarkable sculpture by by Marie Uchytilová commemorates them.
