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 Marie Uchytilová commemorates them. My neighbor went through this. She used to tell me stories i never understood until i matured.

(History) Until the mid-60s, the Aborigines came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aborigine meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

In one of the most infamous pictures of  WWII, a member of the SS prepares to shoot a Jewish woman with her back to him, desperate to protect her child.  A single bullet from his rifle was sufficient for both at such intimate range.  I have read anecdotes that the shooter - a Hungarian Auxiliary - was drunk when he did this, and upon sobering up, was so horrified at his deed that he committed suicide.  I feel no compassion for him.

Standing as one of the most-heinous, race-motivated crimes in America’s history, the kidnapping & savage lynching of 14-year-old Emmett Till in Mississippi. Considered a transformative moment in the African-American Civil Rights Movement, Till’s death shocked a nation & still resonates deeply. Till’s murder helped push along the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, which allowed the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate in local matters.
