    A bit embarassed to say that until I experienced being in the minority, I failed to really grasp the horror of it all. These pictures are chilling in that they showed how evil sort of crawled its way in.

    Thanks for posting these - I really appreciate this technique, although it must be very time consuming and exacting. :cool:

    Thanks for posting these. Brings history awfully close. The people cheering on the side of the road as the Nazis come in reminds me of what my grandparents told me. They remember thinking the Nazi invasion was kind of an exciting change from the usual slow pace of events in their countryside village (they were teenagers at the time, and the Dutch government had been trying to appease the Nazis so that they wouldn't invade us, so many people didn't see them as the enemy yet)... ofcourse they quickly got to know the real face of the Nazi regime...
