On 2 July 1942, most of the children of Lidice, a small village in what was then Czechoslovakia, were handed over to the Łódź Gestapo office. Those 82 children were then transported to the extermination camp at Chełmno 70 kilometers away. There they were gassed to death. This remarkable sculpture by by Marie Uchytilová commemorates them.
"This photograph intrigues me so much! Why isn’t this the most famous photo from 9/11 instead of the falling man? Isn't two people holding hands after jumping, more significant than 1 man? It makes me wonder what the story is behind this photo... were they friends or lovers, or just strangers who were too afraid to jump alone? It shows that people need a helping hand even in their final moments!"
