Disqueting Photo

Easily the most researched topic in history are wars and battles and you, like myself, probably can name a few historic battles and the number of men who fought and died in them.  It isn't unusual to that have casualties in the tens, and sometimes hundreds, of thousands. It is hard to comprehend how many people actually died, to paraphrase Stalin 'Killing one person is a tragedy but a million is just a statistic.'  Here is a photo that I found a  little disquieting, an artist sketched 9,000 human shaped silhouettes on a Normandy beach to honor the men who were killed that day.
