The Holocaust Revisited
Picture
The reconnaissance pilots who risked their lives to photograph the 1. G. Farben complex had no idea that their efforts would one day be remembered not for that particular target but for the grim evidence subsequently revealed on the fringes of their photographs. The World War 11 photointerpreter probably could identify nothing more than the Farben plant and some labor/prisoner of war camps. He could neither see nor imagine the scope of the human drama hidden beneath his eyes, which modern imagery analysis and retrospective historical analysis would eventually reveal.
