Yes more commonly seen photos of corpses stacked like cord wood and mountains of shoes and humilated dying are strong visual images that speak of hopelessness and disparation, which is why the 20 photographs are so unique---they bring out the humanity in people. The look on the girls face in bed when the camp was liberated is haunting. The boisterous joy of the men celebrating with cigarettes and toasts is priceless!
This is a very unique and inspirational collection photographs.
Thanks Peter!

Exactly. Victor Frankl in 'Man's Search For Meaning' offeres a similar view of the camps--I've often thought that his book wasn't popular with many because of his rejection of the more common "hopelessness" in the camps and his ultimate willingness to forgive his captors.
