It’s also why, as was shown in Band of Brothers, a lot of allied commanders forced local civilians to help clean up around the camps after they were liberated.
It’s interesting to see how many mixed reactions there are. It looks like some doing really care, others are uncomfortable, and others are completely horrified
Id like to see a similar picture of americans reacting to this long ass list.
That one guy near the top left looks like “hey, what’s the big deal??”
I didn’t know John Mulaney was a time traveller.
I would guess the the guys hiding their faces, and one the minds of most of the others is: “Oh shit. I’m screwed!” They knew that they’d likely be held accountable.
It’s weird, just describing the atrocities committed brought people to tears back then, nowadays edgy teens post gore in discord servers and think that shits funny
Back right definitely became a movie critic
"Are we the baddies?"
The second guy in the first row you can see looks like David bowie
War is hell for sure, it can bring out the worst in people
Why do I feel like they’re just trying to cover their face and not wipe away tears?
I heard a story of a German officer who was made to go down in a mass grave that the US soldiers found and take a skirt off a dead child. The US soldiers then made him wear it as a neckerchief while he was forced to do manual labor, the US soldiers called him babykiller in German and he would act out only to be put down by the Germans because things got worse for them because of him. A week or 2 went past and the other Germans turned on him the US soldiers hated him and it showed. When he was fed the Germans would take his food and piss in his canteen. The water guys also dumped the ladel rather then give him a drink. The guy that told the story was a guard at the end of the war. He was in my VFW till he passed. He told us of a dumptruck load of glasses they made the Germans load by hand. I saw some crazy shit in Vietnam but the toll in either war really makes me think.
And the thing is, if the Nazis had of won WWII, not many Germans would have been ‘sorry’.
