Japan, Nagasaki, 1945.  In the photo, the boy stands erect, having done his duty by bringing his dead brother to a cremation ground. Standing at attention was an obvious military influence. Looking at the boy who carries his younger sibling on his back, keeps a stiff upper lip, tries so hard to be brave is heart-breaking. He has epitomized the spirit of a defeated nation.

I believe this perspective still exists today considering how many 'Army Wives' speak out and share their story in the media.

19 Kisses Captured At The Perfect Moment: Marlene Dietrich kisses a GI as he arrives home from World War II in this is just a heart warming beautiful photo.

This is maybe one of the most powerful pictures I have ever seen. The numbers on the arms are from prisoners of Nazi concentration camps. The numbers replaced their names while at the camps and they were tattooed on so that they could be easily tracked by the Germans. This is why we study history. So this never happens again.
