If there is one photo that can image the word ‘regret’, it has to be this one. German soldiers were shown footage of the concentration camps. The troops, who clearly had no idea of the horrors of the camps, are visibly appalled by what they’re being shown.
When the Americans got mixed up in the Second World War too, troops naturally had to be sent out. For many Americans, that of course meant saying goodbye to their loved ones. This gripping photo was taken of that breathtaking moment.
