In one of the most infamous pictures of WWII, a member of the SS prepares to shoot a Jewish woman with her back to him, desperate to protect her child. A single bullet from his rifle was sufficient for both at such intimate range. Anecdotes say that the shooter - a Hungarian Auxiliary - was drunk when he did this, and upon sobering up, was so horrified at his deed that he committed suicide.

This mother and child never made it to the camps. They were shot during roundup. A giant version of this photograph is present at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Israel.

If you haven't seen Schindler's List,a Steven Speilburg movie, then you probably don't know who Oscar Schindler is but remember one thing he saved many Jews during the Holo cost a true hero of a man. I recommend this movie!

Auschwitz To live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning in the suffering. If there is any purpose in life at all, there must be a purpose in suffering and in dying. But no man can tell another what this purpose is. Each must find out for himself, and must accept the answer that his solution prescribes. If he succeeds, he will continue to grow despite all the indignities.’ So writes one time Harvard Professor of Psychology, Gordon Allport:
