Czeslawa Kwoka, a Polish child killed in Auschwitz.  The Nazi soldier would kill children with phenol injections.  The child was place on a stool, blindfolded with a towel, then injected in the chest with a needle.

"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana

WW1 soldiers were encumbered with a variety of kit, the total weight of which often exceeded 20 kilos. Here, a Sergeant of the Australian Infantry poses for the photographer in full marching order. He carries plenty of bandoliers for his Lee-Enfield rifle. His helmet is slung over his left shoulder. His backpack contains dry rations for at least 3 days.
