Fragment of a huge wall with photos of WW2 victims.
"Ohhh, war, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent lives"
Edwin Starr - War (5 years and 1717 days ago)
What an emotional photograph, it makes you think.
wouldnt call them innocent if they were in a war, probably on my own with that school of thinking, but its a great photo anyway
Lavenderflower, they were not in the war by their own choosing, civilians taken prisoners by the Nazi.
I think this is a great shot for this theme. Definitely shows it can be done without kids or animals. Yes, for most of those people, their only crime would have been to fit into one of the many categories the Nazis didn't like. It wouldn't have been hard... if you were an artist, a gypsy, the wrong nationality, an intellectual, a true patriot, the wrong religion, and many more, you could have easily had your picture on that wall.
Victim's of war are not aggressors...not solders...lavenderflower23, think before you comment...these people did not by all means cause a war or fight in it for whatever reason, they were definitely "INNOCENT" civilians...
I cannot imagine what these people went through, I was a voluntary combatant in a time of war, but, that was my choice...
Are we sure these are victims, the photos say 'LEUTNANT' and 'OBERLEUTNANT', perhaps these are German military??
when it comes to war I like to think everyone is a victim in the end even the agressors.. they just didnt knew it before it all started and went wrong...
Oberleutnant is a junior officer rank in the militaries of Germany, Switzerland and Austria. In the German Army
OK let me try to explain this:
The people on the photos where Soviet civilians (look at the names, they are for sure not German), they where Soviet civilians forced into the Soviet army at the end of WW2, which IMHO makes them not soldiers by choice but innocent victims (see the high number of women in this photo).
The German text on the photos is because this photo is taken on a permanent exhibition in Bergen-Belsen a former Nazi concentration camp in Germany which these days is a memorial for the people killed there.

This is WOW!
So clever..well done!
If only the bottom of the teapot wasn't so abruptly cut off, this would be perfect. Still a wonderful shot though author. Well done!!
So creative....Great Job!
very clever... love it
INdeed, very cool!!!
One photo helping another photo...cool idea.
VERY cool. Teapot should be an inch or two higher so the bottom isn't cut off... but VERY cool shot
Thanks for the great comments and favs!
About the teaput being cut off: this is on purpose so it is more obvious they are 2 photos and thats what this contest IMHO is about.
We've been wanting to do a portrait of mother and daughter for a long time and this seemed to be an original way (to us) to do it.
Um, yup! What everyone else said! GL!
congrats on a great shot!
