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.

THE LAST ONE KILLED ME
Another view (with detail) of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Duchess Sophie, lying in state after their assassinations. (This photo, taken from the Duchess’ vantage point, is very rare - I think it was published for the first time in an English-language book only a few years ago. Note that the coffins are resting on the floor; the photograph was taken before the formal lying-in-state.) The Duchess, a Catholic, is holding a rosary in her white-gloved hands and wearing a high-necked white silk and lace gown; the bouquet given to her shortly before her murder can be seen lying next to her body. White silk shrouds are draped over the lower halves of hers and the Archduke’s coffins. One other interesting detail is that the coffins the bodies were placed in at Sarajevo were actually the same size; as the accounts of the funeral ceremonies at Vienna have the Duchess’ coffin being smaller than that of her husband, it appears that Prince Montenuovo (a world-class jerk, if you ask me; he was behind the lion’s share of the slights poor Sophie suffered all through her marriage) directed that her body be transferred to a smaller coffin. Which makes me hot under the collar. >:(
Princess Alice of Battenberg
Princess Alice of Battenberg, later Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark was the mother of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and mother-in-law of Queen Elizabeth II.
She was congenitally deaf, and grew up in Germany, England and the Mediterranean, and in 1930, she was diagnosed with schizophrenia and committed to a sanatorium. After her recovery, she devoted most of her remaining years to charity work in Greece.
She stayed in Athens during the Second World War, where she worked for the Red Cross, helped organize soup kitchens for the starving populace and flew to Sweden to bring back medical supplies on the pretext of visiting her sister, Louise, who was married to the Crown Prince. She organized two shelters for orphaned and stray children, and a nursing circuit for poor neighbourhoods.
The occupying forces apparently presumed Princess Andrew was pro-German, nonetheless, when visited by a German general who asked her, "Is there anything I can do for you?", she replied, "You can take your troops out of my country."
Princess Andrew hid Jewish widow Rachel Cohen and two of her five children, who sought to evade the Gestapo and deportation to the death camps.
During the fighting, to the dismay of the British, she insisted on walking the streets distributing rations to policemen and children in contravention of the curfew order. When told that she might have been shot by a stray bullet, she replied "they tell me that you don’t hear the shot that kills you and in any case I am deaf. So, why worry about that?"
In January 1949, the princess founded a nursing order of Greek Orthodox nuns, the Christian Sisterhood of Martha and Mary.
She died at Buckingham Palace on 5 December 1969. She is recognized as “Righteous Among the Nations" at Yad Vashem.Prince Philip said of his mother’s sheltering of persecuted Jews, “I suspect that it never occurred to her that her action was in any way special. She was a person with a deep religious faith, and she would have considered it to be a perfectly natural human reaction to fellow beings in distress.”
THE LAST ONE IM DYING
The second one is my favorite. It’s like he triggered a giant vacuum and was instantly pulled away out of sight.
The hilarious part is that it’s actually a really effective defensive reaction. There are predators that will go after cats, and while most of them are well-adapted to deal with a target that charges, dodges to the side, or turns and runs, very few have the slightest clue how to respond when their target goes straight up.
THEY BAT THE THINGS TOWARDS THEMSELVES AND THEN FREAK OUT AND JUMP UP
I refuse to believe cats are real
that one that shotgunned a beer though
That man you see there, he is a 92 year old veteran from Norway, who was tortured by the nazis during world war II.
The upper picture is the picture of the “BOY London” logo, that’s so popular now days.
Then, on the picture under, is a known symbol that were used under by the nazis in World War II.
Now you can all think of what you’re really wearing.
finally someone made a post about it, everyone’s running around with the Third Reich Eagle on their chests
think about it
yes make it known. nobody ever talks about it.
