One piece of the Memorial against War and Fascism (1988~1991) by Alfred Hrdlicka which commemorates the dark years when Austria came under Nazi rule (1938~1945). A sculpture with its head buried in the stone is Orpheus entering the underworld, meant to remind Austrians (and the rest of us) of the victims of Nazism... the consequences of not keeping our governments on track. Viewing this monument gains even more emotional impact when you realize what happened on this spot. During a WWII bombing attack, several hundred people were buried alive when the cellar they were using as shelter was demolished. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #memorial #war #sculpture #darksideofhistory #nazism #cityscape #visualsoflife #instatravel #travel #traveler #travelingram #travelgram #travelphotography #traveltheworld #traveling #traveller #igtravel #explore #neverstopexploring #wanderlust #iamtb #ig_europe #europe_focus_on #earthpix #living_europe #living_destinations #travellingthroughtheworld #Wien #Vienna #Austria 🇦🇹

St. Nicholas Church from Densuș, Hunedoara County - one of the oldest still-standing churches in Romania. It was built in the 7th century, over an old pagan temple. In the 13th century the church was rebuilt and expanded with stones and marble hauled from the nearby ruined capital of Roman Dacia, Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa. #sarmizegetusa #marble #stone #christianity #byzantine #rite #greekorthodox #easternorthodox #earlychristian #earlychurch #romanianhistory #churchhistory #darksideofhistory

German "trench club" from World War I. Trench clubs were crude, hand-made and often improvised melee weapons fashioned by both Entente and Central Powers soldiers who fought on the Western Front. These weapons were used alongside knives and other melee weapons in trench warfare, more specifically in nighttime trench raids. Some trench clubs had nails or spikes sticking out of them, others were wrapped in barbed wire and others had a metal object attached at the striking end (for example an empty hand grenade). Trench clubs proved to be quite deadly and efficient, especially when used to finish incapacipated enemy troops, like those afflicted or blinded by gas attacks.

"Old Kaitish [indigenous Australian] woman knocking tooth out of young girl to make her more attractive. All the girl's teeth were sound, but the men of the tribe had lost interest in teeth extraction as a magic mystery, and instead of making it a male privilege, as tongue-piercing still was, let women, and even girls, have their teeth knocked out. And they were keen on it. The tooth , having been loosened by pressure with a stick, is being knocked out with three sharp blows. Afterwards, the girl danced with pleasure.

The Ladies of Téviec lived and died almost 7000 years ago in what is today Brittany, France. The women were between 25-35 years of age when they suffered a violent death, both displaying severe head injuries and still having arrowheads embedded in their bones. The circumstances of their deaths remain unknown; they could had been murdered by a rival clan or tribe, or they could had been sacrificed by their own people. The Ladies were buried with great care on the small island of Téviec, being placed under a roof of antlers. Their bodies were adorned with funerary jewelery made from marine shells. The burial was discovered by Marthe and Saint-Just Péquart in 1928.

First Umayyad gold dinar depicting Caliph Abd al-Malik, 695 AD. The Islamic Umayyads sought to emulate the Eastern Romans/Byzantines just like the Germanic barbarians did in Western Europe. Numismatic traditions, among many other Byzantine cultural traits, were appropriated by the Muslims in the 7th century AD. Note that - contrary to popular belief - there are depictions of the human figure in Islamic context.

During the construction of the Kenya-Uganda Railway in 1898, a pair of maneless Tsavo lions terrorized the construction workers for 9 months. The Tsavo man-eaters (as they were called) killed and devoured over 130 unfortunate Indian workers, usually dragging them from their tents at night. The workers built fences around their camp, made huge fires at night and tried all sorts of tricks to scare the Tsavo man-eaters, but to no avail. As attacks continued and more workers were eaten alive, panic spread and hundreds fled the site, halting construction. Luckily, Lieutenant-Colonel John Henry Patterson managed to ambush and shoot the Tsavo man-eaters in December 1898, after a few failed attempts to kill the beasts. Today, the man-eating Tsavo lions can be seen in the Field Museum of Natural History from Chicago.

A highly romantic depiction of Arminius and his Germanic warriors celebrating their victory over the Romans in the so-called Battle of Teutoburg Forest. In reality, Arminius, a fully Romanized German who was an officer in the Imperial Army and a respected high ranking member of Roman society, betrayed his fellow Romans and butchered them like cattle in the thick woodlands of Germania. Arminius knew that the poorly disciplined and poorly equipped Germanic warbands would be obliterated by the Roman war machine in an open confrontation. Subsequently, the traitor Arminius suffered defeat after defeat against Germanicus who led an extensive military campaign in Germania to avenge the betrayal from Teutoburg Forest. In the end Arminius the traitor was himself betrayed - the chiefs of various Germanic tribes he sought to subjugate to his will assassinated him. They were probably tired of fighting against the Romans or felt threatened by Arminius' ambitions.

“TURKS SLAUGHTER CHRISTIAN GREEKS Not Satisfied With Torture of Armenians, Turks Extend Cruelty to Greeks. Thousands of Greeks Deported From the Coast to Interior of Asia Minor. NEW YORK, Oct. 19.—Not sated by the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Armenians and Syrians, the Turk has also turned against the Greek Christians in his dominions and more than 700,000 have fallen a victim to persecution in the form of death, suffering or deportation, it was declared here today by Frank W. Jackson, of this city, chairman of the relief committee for Greeks of Asia Minor. He said the real details of these new Turkish atrocities were just beginning to leak out. “The story of the Greek deportation is not yet generally known,” said Mr. Jackson. “Quietly and gradually the same treatment is being meted out to the Greeks as to the Armenians. Although closely guarded, certain echoes of these horrors come out from time to time. “There were some two or three million Greeks in Asia Minor at the outbreak of the war in 1914, subject to Turkish rule. According to the latest reliable and authoritative accounts some seven to eight hundred thousand have been deported, mainly from the coast regions into the interior of Asia Minor.” The Lincoln Daily Star, October 19th 1917, page 7
