When a photo made a real difference
I was searching for something else and stumbled across this quite famous photo and the story of the lives it saved. I think it is very much worth your time to read.
I didn’t want to stop, and didn’t. I didn’t want to remember that I had seen it, so drove on and ignored the summons. Then accompanied by the rhythmic hum of the windshield wipers, arose an inner argument: ‘Dorothea, how about that camp back there? What is the situation back there? Are you going back? Nobody could ask this of you, now could they? To turn back is certainly not necessary.
