#20  German soldier going home

German soldier going home

In 1946 a German soldier, who was a war prisoner, returned to his home at Frankfurt. He had survived a lot of years of battle, let alone the fact that he was held captive for a long time. Yet, this photo made by Tony Vaccaro shows that all of these years of war were nothing compared to the grief the soldier felt when he discovered that his children and wife, the only people giving his a bright hope for tomorrow, have all perished. This one is  a solid contestant in the sad love images category.
