Covid-19 is killing people in the streets. An overhead photograph from January 2020 shows scores of people dead on street, square, and sidewalk. The calamity is in China, or Italy, or a host of other places the coronavirus has struck with severity.
On March 24, 2014, photographer Kai Pfaffenbach captured a memorial art project in Frankfurt, Germany. During the commemoration, people lay in the pedestrian zone in remembrance of a horrifying Holocaust death march that took place 45 days before the end of World War II. On the original date, March 24, 1945, inmates of the Katzbach concentration camp, part of the Adlerwerke industrial complex, were forced into a death march to the concentration camps of Buchenwald and Dachau. Some 528 victims of Katzbach are buried in a collective grave at Frankfurt’s central cemetery.
