    This was one of my teachers in Prague...His name was Jan Weiner and he was a Holocaust survivor. The photo is taken at a **** staging area called Terezin. You can see all the graves behind him...one of them is his mother's. Really incredible man...you should check out his documentary called "Fighter."

    I really like this photo.

    His expression reminds me of someone remembering something, and with the slightly blurry (almost faint) graves behind him, it's as if the Holocaust will always be a part of his memory and his past (which, of course, it is for anyone who had to go through it).

    That photo is the answer to the idiots who say it didn't happen. When you can rewrite history you are bound to repeat the mistakes.

    The power to show the truth is one of the many great strengths of this craft.

    Thanks for keeping it alive.

    I like the arrangement, but think it needs just a little tweaking in PS of the levels or maybe the color channels

    Very nice. We might have even guessed what it was without you telling us so, which says a lot for the photo.
