Voted the Number 1 most Powerful Image of 2011 - Robert Peraza, who lost his son Robert David Peraza in 9/11, pauses at his son’s name at the North Pool of the 9/11 Memorial. Images are a powerful thing! @Cindy Zhang
One of the most moving and thought provoking pictures I've ever seen. Blessing to those who are able to overlook blatant ignorance. I pray that one day we will be able to move past prejudice and learn to celebrate one another. Life is too short to be ruled by hate.
On 2 July 1942, most of the children of Lidice, a small village in what was then Czechoslovakia, were handed over to the Łódź Gestapo office. Those 82 children were then transported to the extermination camp at Chełmno 70 kilometers away. There they were gassed to death. This remarkable sculpture by by Marie Uchytilová commemorates them.
