In the past, people have faced a number of tragic happenings. The World Wars had been a tough time for most of the people in the world. And during World War II many lost their lives due to the holocaust.

When it comes to today’s society there are people who have no idea what the holocaust is. The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah is the genocide of European Jews. There’s a Holocaust Remembrance Day to commemorate the victims of the holocaust.  Even though many were killed at that time there are few who know about it. Therefore this person Joachim West had colorized images from the Holocaust to give people an idea about the time. Scroll down to have a look at the colorized images.
