Colorised photos of a girl killed at Auschwitz-Birkenau
I didn't realise it was the same person in all three photos, mainly because the third featured a head covering which made it look like someone else. The photos are of Czesława Kwoka.
The photos themselves are not distressing, but in a way it's horrifying looking at them just knowing what happened.
"Before the photograph was taken, the girl dried her tears and the blood from the cut on her lip". (Wilhelm Brasse, the photographer).
You can buy Amaral's book, The Colour of Time where she has colourised photos taken between 1850 and 1960.
The photos also really reminded me of the film The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, based on a book of the same name which I highly recommend.

Big Boi Tiny Desk Concert
Joined by Sleepy Brown, Big Boi delivers a brilliant Tiny Desk Concert. Starts with So Fresh, So Clean from Stankonia, on to the recent hit All Night and topping it off with The Way You Move from his half of the Speakerboxxx/The Love Below double album. I'd completely forgotten about Sleepy Brown and his track Margarita featuring Pharrell and Big Boi.
