It is amazing to think that it is only 69 years since the camp was liberated and the world saw and heard for the first time the true horrors that went on.
I have put some picture, found on the web below – credits where I could find them.

Seeing these pictures reminds me of several conversations I have had in the past about photography and war photography in particular.
How can a photographer just take pictures and not help the people in the images? How can a photographer not be affected by the images he or she takes?
I know that when I am photographing a wedding I feel really privileged to be part of the service and feel just as moved when you see the commitment two people are making to each other. I also know that when I was taking pictures in the Army either professionally or personally it was very hard to distance yourself from the reality of what you were seeing.
I can still remember some of the images I took in Bosnia whilst in the Army. They reminded me of seeing similar images see above.
So, how about the images below? Where do you think this was taken? And when?

Guessed yet? They were all taken 10 years in Romania. 2001. I was out there just after I had left the Army as part of a local charity (North Nibley Romania Team -NNRT). We looked after a school and a ‘hospital’ out there in a small village near to Brasov.
I was in London last night and today visiting a client; and as usual I stayed at the Union Jack Club. A great places close to Waterloo. The best thing about the club is that it has about 30 floors and a great view of the London skyline!
