Rare Photos That Captured Incredible Moments from History

Historic photos are a form of art, to me…they capture amazing events from the past, and bring them to life in the present.
The comparisons between then and now are striking.

    I think I could look at the picture of Miss Counts and feel not so bad IF I could look at the current world picture and see obvious improvement.

    Unfortunately with Trumpsteria with its racial slurs, hate-mongering, and violence, I find it extremely difficult to look at the Miss Counts picture, the Auschwitz picture, and others, realizing that the hatred is still in place, still strong.

      Understandable…and that’s the sad thing, isn’t it? People don’t want to see that they’re just repeating history with their blind support of, as Trevor Noah on the Daily Show calls him, “Cinnamon Hitler.”

      The pictures need to be seen so that people who lived through this before remember the horrors – and make sure that history doesn’t repeat itself. Sadly, it seems that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Complacency and apathy won out, somewhere, it seems…I hope that I’m wrong in that estimation.

      They are powerful in what they capture, for sure…I plan on showing the page to my mom and dad when I visit them next month, just to see what memories are evoked for them.
