Blake was commissioned to illustrate Dante's Divine Comedy, but his untimely death meant this watercolour was never finished. He actually spent his final day labouring over the project. At first glance the scene looks quite blissful, but peek inside the current and you'll find the bodies of the damned. The sun might be shining, but this is a vision of hell. by karla

I cannor even fathom.... A mother holds her newborn baby in the Kovno (Lithuania) Ghetto hospital. A Jewish star is sewn onto the child's blanket, marking the baby for probable death just minutes after he or she was born. Of the 30,000 original residents of the Kovno Ghetto, which was established in the summer of 1941, less than 10% survived. by suzanne

The picture was taken in the early 1930s by the sender's grandfather, who lived in Alaska. The entitiy was first seen when the grandfather was on his way to a lake. He chased the entity until he got close enough to take this one picture. It was some four months before the photograph was developed, being in in a remote, sparsely populated area. The sender received the picture from his grandfather only last week. His grandfather died the day after by helene

This poignant third view depicts her bereaved father clutching his daughter for her last family photograph. He was photographed alone with his daughter possibly because the picture was taken as a personal statement of love and loss. However, it is also possible that his wife is deceased, or was unable to bear the prospect of being photographed  very sad.They did not know about great fun life memories? by emma_gamble
