Týden zdravotních sester

Svatý týden v Terezíně. Autor knihy popisuje méně známou kapitolu neblaze proslulé terezínské Malé pevnosti, ke které došlo počátkem května 1945. Tehdy bylo do Terezína vysláno 37 mladých děvčat, v té době sudujících zdravotních sester v nemocnici Na Bulovce, aby pomohly eliminovat a vyléčit zdejší vězně nakažené nebezpečným skrvnitým tyfem. Jak napovídá název knihy, tyto statečné dívky odjely do pekla terezínského ghetta v době, kdy se měly připravovat na zkoušku dospělosti.

An American nurse in Australia (November 1942). Her expression, hairstyle, body language, and the jaunty angle of her cap combine to project a remarkably contemporary look and feel.

Grandmother died last week, she was a naval nurse. These are some pictures from WWII. (Album in comments.)

Jewish mothers and their children walk to the gas chambers at Birkenau.  This was taken mid-1944, when the extermination process had been ramped up to full speed. Did these people know that death waited at the end of their walk?  By 1944, the adults, at least, must have known.  Even had they heard no rumors, the air itself must have been thick with the stink of burning flesh.

This is maybe one of the most powerful pictures I have ever seen. The numbers on the arms are from prisoners of Nazi concentration camps.

A German in a military uniform shoots at a Jewish woman after a mass execution in Mizocz, Ukraine. In October of 1942, the 1,700 people in the Mizocz ghetto fought with Ukrainian auxiliaries and German policemen who had intended to liquidate the population. About half the residents were able to flee or hide during the confusion before the uprising was finally put down. The captured survivors were taken to a ravine and shot.
