Under the supervision of American soldiers, German civilians from Nammering are forced to view the corpses of prisoners exhumed from a mass grave near the town. The victims were shot by the SS during an evacuation transport from Buchenwald to Dachau. The civilians were made to walk barefooted so that they could feel the sometimes blood-wet mud on their skin. by berta

History
German soldiers, date unknown.  The reality of War.  Many soldiers on both sides were little more than kids.  Thrown into uniform and given scant training, they were forced to endure combat and conditions that eventually broke even the hardest of the hard-hearted.  They also died in droves. Just because they fought for Germany didn't necessarily mean they were Nazis or held Nazi views.  The Concentration Camps were Hell, no doubt, but during WWII, Hell stretched in every direction. by christa

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 captured teenage Nazi is in tears as he holds out his wounded arm for a sympathetic American to examine as they wait for a medic in Cherbourg. The French were sometimes puzzled (and angered) by Americans' kind treatment of prisoners, including giving them oranges, which they had not seen for years. by simone

The Audubon family began in Audubon Park—once home to Native Americans, and later, to New Orleans' first mayor, Etienne de Boré. During the Civil War, the location alternately hosted a Confederate camp and a Union hospital. In 1866, it was the activation site for the 9th Calvary, the "Buffalo Soldiers" whose defense of our country's western frontier made an indelible mark on America's African-American heritage. by phyllis

Why is the boiled peanut the official state snack of South Carolina? There's some history behind boiled peanuts. South Carolinians began boiling them in the 1800's, and they were designated as the official state snack in 2006. It's said that during times of war when soldiers were in need of nutrition with high protein and without cooking facilities, they boiled peanuts over campfires. They discovered that these peanuts would not spoil for several days. Here's how to boil or where to buy them. by louellaa

Took an old smelly couch, stripped it and made it into an outdoor couch. I used fence pickets, sanded them smooth, stained and attached to front back and sides. I used premium quality pine for the arms and top. Total cost, roughly 150 dollars. Still needs cushions and pillows... anyone want to sew some for me?? Reuse, Recycle. by sally tb

Irena Sendler 1910-2008 A 98 year-old German woman named Irena Sendler recently died. During WWII, Irena worked in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumbing/sewer specialist. Irena smuggled Jewish children out; infants in the bottom of the tool box she carried and older children in a burlap sack she carried in the back of her truck. She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids’ and infants’ noises. Irena managed to smuggle out and save 2500 children. She eventually was caught, and the Nazis broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar buried under a tree in her backyard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and reunited some of the families. Most had been killed. She helped those children get placement into foster family homes or adopted. Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won- for a slide show on Global Warming, he's a douche. by surnaturel
