Submit famous photo

I received comments that “the list should contain ‘this’ or ‘that’ picture”. There are famous pictures that i don’t know about (Imagine that!!!), so i ask you to tell me about them. I don’t ask for a complete story about the picture or the exact year when it was taken, anything is just fine. I can manage to find them after that.

Thanking you in advance,

    Hitler crushed entire Europe by September 1941. His troops were rushing toward Moscow seemingly invincible. At this, very moment of the peek of Hitler’s power his troops were defeated in rebellious Serbia. Just look what united Serbs could do! This kind of site was impossible to see anywhere else in the world: long column of defeated, captured German Nazi soldiers. The prisoners are escorted through Uzice, central Serbia, by both Partisan and Chetnik troops.

    This photograph is from the same Time-Life book we are quoting. You can see it on page 85.

    The Unfinished Portrait is an oil painting of Franklin Delano Roosevelt that was in progress at the time of his collapse and subsequent death. Elizabeth Shoumatoff had begun working on the portrait of the president around noon on April 12, 1945. FDR was being served lunch when he stated “I have a terrific headache” and then collapsed of a massive cerebral hemorrhage. Later that day Roosevelt died. Shoumatoff never finished the portrait.

    The Unfinished Portrait hangs at Roosevelt’s former health and relaxation retreat in Warm Springs, Georgia, known as the Little White House.

    In October 1990, Rajiv Goswami, a student of Delhi Univeristy (India), attempted self-immolation (and later died after a prolonged illness) protesting against the implementation of the Mandal Commission’s recommendations.
