  • Sluggo... no... not all my relatives call their first born 'Max' just the women in the family. it is actually short for my last name. My first name is actually my grandmothers maiden last name. it is kinda traditional. maybe a tad unimaginative but does make for some interesting first names.

  • That was what I asked. Go back and read the question again. Are you getting into the sauce early today?

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S.

  • Thes pictures really bother me. I think it's the colorizatin that really does it...



    The girl in the image is 14-year-old Catholic Polish girl Czesława Kwok. The young girl was deported to Auschwitz from her home in Zamość, Poland in December 1942, along with her mother as part of the Nazis’ secret A-B action, the deliberate extermination of the Polish intelligentsia.

    According to reports, Czesława was photographed by “the famous photographer of Auschwitz” Wilhelm Brasse, a young Polish inmate in his twenties, as part of a project by officials to document those taken to the death camp.

    Trained as a portrait photographer at his aunt’s studio prior to the 1939 German invasion of Poland beginning World War II, Brasse and others had been ordered to photograph inmates by their Nazi captors.



    The photos of Czesława were taken just moments after she was beaten by a female prison guard — apparently the young girl couldn’t understand the orders that were being barked at her in German, as it wasn’t her native tongue.

    Brasse, who died in 2012, said the prison guard had beaten the girl across the face with a stick, leading to her cut lip.

    Speaking about his memory of Czesława in in 2005 documentary The Portraitist, photographer Brasse recalled “she was so young and so terrified. The girl didn’t understand why she was there and she couldn’t understand what was being said to her.



    “So this woman Kapo (a prisoner overseer) took a stick and beat her about the face. This German woman was just taking out her anger on the girl. Such a beautiful young girl, so innocent. She cried but she could do nothing.

    “Before the photograph was taken, the girl dried her tears and the blood from the cut on her lip. To tell you the truth, I felt as if I was being hit myself but I couldn’t interfere. It would have been fatal for me. You could never say anything.”

    Though ordered to destroy all photographs and their negatives, Brasse became famous after the war for having helped to rescue some of them from oblivion, and keeping the memory of the photographed inmates alive.



    Czesława died in March 1943, just three months after arriving at Auschwitz, weeks after her mother Katarzyna.

    According to the Auschwitz Memorial, she was killed by Nazi doctors with a lethal injection of phenol into the heart.



    Artist Marina Amaral has coloured the portraits of the young girl, bringing a more haunting, lifelike quality to the images.
