WORLD WAR 2 PICTURES
|These photos were taken in Germany by James Emison Chanslor, an Army Master Sergeant who served in World War II from 1942 until 1945.|
|Source: Photos courtesy of John Michael Chanslor|
It is a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect: 'Get
it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere
down the track of history some b *stard will get up and say that this never
The above sentence is not really correct, but it does nothing to negate the reality
of the horror of these images, or the fact that there are those who make such obscene claims:
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in

From Me('65) of NC - 05/04/16 (sic):
On a personal note, as the Regimental Surgeon for the 116th Infantry of the 29th Division, my daddy, the late Robert Buckley (John Marshall HS - '25) was present at the liberation of at least one of the infamous Nazi concentration camps, the one at Dinslaken. He would never actually admit it to me, but he was in the right place at the right time, and it would stand to reason that he should have been there. Moreover, on more than one occasion he related in great detail a delousing scene of woman prisoners (he called them "refugees") which I later viewed in a documentary exactly as he had described. Most telling to me, however, was the way he never missed an opportunity to show me, a young child, very graphic images of the camps as they appeared in magazines and on television. Considering the great care he had taken to protect me from other evils of the world, his heroic efforts that I should never forget speak volumes to me, even today.
Thank you, Daddy.

|Recently, Joey Lawrence (Hampton HS - '54), who was a stellar athlete for his school and his community, passed away. Having experienced severe financial reverses, Joey died without leaving funds to pay for his final expenses, which just should not be. His friends are seeking to take care of them for him, as they know he would have done for them.

BONUS APRIL KNIT PATTERN:
Heidi's April Scarf - "This chevron stitch beauty is a neck accessory you won't be able to take off. The April Scarf is a delicious blend of warm purples, deep blues, and hints of gold in an attractively textured scarf. This knit scarf pattern looks great with self-patterning yarn because the fun zig zag stitch allows all the colors to shine through. The April Scarf is a light and airy, yet warm scarf that will hug your neck in all the right places."
