WHEN YOU KILL TEN MILLION AFRICANS YOU AREN’T CALLED ‘HITLER’. His name is King Leopold II of Belgium. He “bought” the Congo and enslaved its people, turning the entire country into his own personal slave plantation. He used their enslaved labor to extract Congolese resources and services. His reign was enforced through work camps, body mutilations, torture, executions, and his own private army. by angeline

An immensely powerful photo showing a Concentration camp inmate confronting a camp guard.  The look on the guard's face shows not remorse, but the meekness of a bully brought to judgement.  During the liberation of the camps, Allied troops occasionally turned their backs as inmates beat their former guards to death with anything at hand. by jayne

A US Army soldier gives oranges to starving survivors of the Wöbbelin concentration camp: Wöbbelin concentration camp, a subcamp of Neuengamme concentration camp, was established in February 1945 to hold prisoners evacuated from other camps in order to prevent their liberation by the approaching Allied forces. At its height the camp housed approximately 5,000 inmates. Wöbbelin was liberated by American troops on May 2, 1945, who found around 1,000 corpses strewn throughout the camp. by Jus_Grace
