Here are this week’s interesting historical photos. For part 114, click here.
1. Anne Frank’s father Otto, revisiting the attic where they hid from the Nazis, 1960.

The eruption killed 57 as it destroyed the village of San Sebastiano and San Giorg in March 1944 while Allied forces were battling for supremacy in the skies.
3. JFK’s funeral at the Capitol, November 1963.
4. Leningrad Gas mask drill, 1939.
5. Sherman fording a river in Germany, 1945.
6. Helen, an American Indian telephone and switchboard operator, Montana, 1925.
7. Trench Warfare.

Beautiful photos, but heartbreaking
