Nice pictures, found some new one i suspect i haven't saved yet. What's annoying is when you have to name all the pictures yourself because the original file name is crap.

A man, his wife, and child are seen after they had left Minsk on August 9, 1941, when the German army swarmed in. The original wartime caption reads, in part: "Hatred for the Nazis burns in the man's eyes as he holds his little child, while his wife, completely exhausted, lies on the pavement
.
more likely his eyes are full of exhaustion and despair

its painful to see the faces of POWs of both sides (esp russians in this case ) knowing that most of them perished in the most horrible circumstances

Yes but as Michele already mentioned the text [and captions] are iffy. It is the photo's that are exceptional.
