Consequences of WW2

Hey guys!

I want to start with a massive trigger warning on this, if you can't handle blood, dead people or war then this is absolutely not for you, because this is graphic.

A couple of days ago I watched the movie The Photographer of Mauthausen, which is based on a real story about the life in a concentration camp. We follow Francesc Boix, who's a photographer, and he uses his people skills to "climb the ladder" in the camp so the nazis rely on him more, which gives him more opportunities to save himself and the other captured.

Because of wit and influence he manages to take and sneak out pictures of what was really going on inside Mauthausen in Austria. It's so moving and so, so good. I mean, you're going to cry, feel sick to your stomach and turn it off, but at the same time it's very enlightening because I don't think we think about how it was to live in one of those camps.

Which brings me to the other documentary I'm going to talk about, which is MUCH WORSE. And now you're thinking "how can it be worse than a concentration camp?" Well, how about 11 concentration camps?

I'm posting the entire documentary down below because I couldn't find a trailer from literally 1945, which is when it was released, but I highly recommend watching it on Netflix instead because the quality is x1000 better and you can use subtitles when they talk in foreign languages.

Basically I just stumbled upon this after watching the first movie and I was... So fucking disturbed. I couldn't even cry, I just stared at this extreme, awful, disgusting footage of humans being handled like ragdolls who never lived or had a name. But I'm also incredibly thankful for the people that were able to help giving the people find "peace" being buried.

They also show footage of when they kinda clean up some of the camps and then place like 200 dead bodies in a room, then invite the villagers into the camps to show them just what they have fought for and what they've helped fund. The all walk in dressed in nice clothes like "oh, how awesome that we finally get to see this place" and the next scene are them running away, crying their eyes out and vomiting.
And keep in mind that these aren't skeletons that have been laying in the ground forever so they're muscles have disappeared, they are literally newly starved to death human beings who are SKELETONS. Like bare essentials is the only thing left of them when they die.
My brother isn't one to cry, but when they brought out the plowing tractor he was on the brink of having a meltdown.

So my point with this is about how fucking greatful we should be each and every day because we aren't skeletons that are just thrown into a mass grave like we never even existed. We're not thankful enough.
I'm posting the documentary and a picture down below, and again, if you feel too "weak" or you have a hard time looking at things like this then now is absolutely the time to stop scrolling.

This picture has been posted many, many times so I'm not giving a specific page credit.
