The Most Iconic Photographs From National Geographic's 125-Year History. Perhaps the most iconic National Geographic photo, Steve McCurry snapped this picture of an Afghan girl in a Pakistan refugee camp in 1984. It almost went unnoticed, until one editor rescued it from a pile and stuck it on the June 1985 Cover. Absolutely stunning photo. #nationalgeographic
Famous refugees: Anne Frank and her family moved to Amsterdam in 1933 after the Nazis gained power in Germany. The family applied for a visa into the US but it was denied. They went into hiding but were eventually found and sent to concentration camps, where Anne and most of her relatives died.
