Robert Capa - Chartres, France, August 18th, 1944: Just after the liberation of the town, this French woman who had had a baby with a German soldier has her head shaved as punishment. During the middle ages, this mark of shame, denuding a woman of what was supposed to be her most seductive feature, was commonly a punishment for adultery. Shaving women's heads as a mark of retribution and humiliation was reintroduced in the 20th century and was widespread post WW2.

Truly horrific. This mass grave of murdered Jews was the handiwork of an Einsatzgruppen der Sicherheitspolizei, a group of SS whose sole purpose was the extermination of Jews and other "undesirables". Overseen by Reinhardt Heydrich, the four Einsatzgruppen were comprised of units of Einsatzkommandos which traveled with the Wermacht in order to "purify" newly conquered territories. Each group contained 500 to 800 men. It is estimated that they were responsible for over one million deaths.

Gesia Glazer was a Jewish Freedom Fighter (they fought independently from the allied armies and made significant contributions to the struggle against the Nazis). Though she escaped the Germans by fleeing to USSR, in 1943 she parachuted back into Lithuania. She worked as a liaison between the partisan organization in the Kaunas (Kovno) ghetto and the command of the Lithuanian partisan movement. In 1944, when surrounded by German soldiers, rather than face capture, she leapt to her death.
