    I don't understand the purpose of this thread.

    The thought behind this thread is simply to make pics from the tragedy of war, whether they are german, russian etc, public if you will.

    The first five photographs were taken at the Neues Rathaus [New Town Hall] of Leipizig.

    The pictures of the triple suicide show the bodies of the deputy mayor and city treasurer of Leipzig, Kurt Lisso, his wife Renate Stephanie and their daughter Regina, who took poison on 18th April 1945, the day that U.S. troops took the city.
    (They are often misidentified as the mayor Alfred Freyberg and his wife and daughter, who likewise poisoned themselves in a neighboring office.)

    The dead Bataillonsführer of the Volkssturm is Walter Dönicke, another Leipzig politician, who killed himself on the same occasion together with two other staff members of the local Volkssturm's Kreisstab [district staff] after the Rathaus had surrendered.

    Friedrich-Berthold is right (as always): The photographs were taken by Lee Miller and/or Margaret Bourke-White, who were both at the scene prior to the removal of the bodies.

    Also, there were huge numbers of KL victims who survived the horror of the camps during the war, but could never re-adjust back into a life of normality at wars end. Having lost loved ones/homes and dignity, the memories of the KL just would not let them find peace, sadly suicide seemed their only rest. The evil policies of the Reich continued to kill for many years after 1945! Leon.
