28. Year unknown

A young Morgan Freeman, during a TV appearance in the 1970’s. No clue what the context is, but it all somehow fits together and makes at least a little bit of sense. Just look at that shirt.

29. A German firing squad

29.jpg


This photograph alleges to show a German Communist being executed by a squad of Freikorps (Free Corps) soldiers in 1919. Some believe it to be a staged photo, perhaps to be used for Communist propaganda purposes or for a piece of journalism. Journalists commonly staged these kinds of scenes to be photographed for their work. The soldiers stand too close to the wall to fire without being struck by shrapnel, some of them are holding their rifles incorrectly, and the defiant attitude of the victim seems exaggerated.
