Harsh Reality of War Exposed in These Pictures from the Holocaust

Atrocities from the WW2.

 

Ever since the human history began to take shape, war and peace have been an inevitable cliche in painting the pages. On every step, we have been making mistakes, and at every step, we’ve been learning from it.

But then, there had been some episodes in the chapters of time, that are more than just mistakes – they’re nothing short of a permanent black murk on the face of humanity. And one such stain is that of the Holocaust.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is a memorial day commemorating the horrible tragedy that happened during the Second World War. 6 million Jews lost their lives and today, is for them. We bring you pictures which give you a glimpse of the war. And it was brutal…

Take a look…
