Valorie Morgan's curator insight, April 8, 2014 10:07 AM

You can read a whole book about this subject say it's sad and then move on but when you see the pictures of this terrible events that's when you start realize how horrible it truly was. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and these imagines to me are worth far more than a thousand. This article consists basically "living skeletons". That's starved these poor people were. There's plenty of pictures with orphans, the dead but what really shocked me was the young boy who was crucified and posing for a pictures with holes in his hands. Even the hand sketches are graphic and some of the artists were EYE-WITNESSES. I couldn't even imagine being caught in the middle of that.
