The last Jew of Vinitsa. In this iconic World War 2 photograph, a member of Einsatzgruppe D – a Nazi paramilitary group – is about to shoot a Jewish man kneeling before a filled mass grave in Vinnitsa, Ukraine, in 1942. All 28,000 Jews from Vinnitsa and its surrounding areas were massacred by German forces.
"Screaming with terror amid the furious noises of war, a Vietnamese woman clutches her blood-drenched child who was wounded when jets strafed before landing. Before the air strikes, loudspeaker helicopters broadcast warnings, but many villagers were too panicked to follow instructions and evacuate. Distraught, this woman blundered into the thick of the battle." 1965 photo Paul Schutzer, The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images ~ Vietnam War
