Worst photos from World War II. Part 2

World War II ended the lives of roughly 56 million people. More than half of those were civilians. They were not just part of a staggering statistic, each one of them was somebody’s father, son, sister, mother, daughter, husband or wife. They all had loved ones who would never see them again.

I hope their lives, their sacrifices, their mere existence will never be forgotten. These pictures represent the tragedy, bloodshed, and significance of the war for what it truly was to those living at the time.
