Verdun, 1916 Photo of a soldier’s hand left on the battlefield after the battle of Verdun in WWI. It is a horrific photo, not because of any gore and violence being seen. The hand is what is left from the violence that has occurred and leaves, in the viewers mind, the images of all the violence that must occurred before this image was captured.
