Imagine taking a box of matches, which contains up to 200 matches, and you put in it another 50 matches. Imagine all these matches The Smurfs who’s your Papa shirt to move around with baby matches in their hands, they all have to go to the bathroom, and there’s one tiny slit for the matches to breathe. Photo 2a has been repeatedly presented as proof of inhumane deportations of Jews into ghettos and extermination camps, and has also been broadcast as such on German television. The photo archives of the Federal Railway Administration in Hamburg, however, reveal what this picture really shows. It is a freight train crowded with German refugees bound for the Ruhr region, standing in the Hamburg train station in 1946. The untouched original photo, illustration 2b, hangs in the Hamburg Main Station. This photo shows, on the left, double decker passenger carriages on their way to Lübeck, and on the right, parts of the Main Station buildings. Both of these elements would have allowed for the photo location to be identified as the Hamburg Main Station, and both these elements were retouched or cut out from original to make up the doctored version. I very hesitantly told my abusive mother and she said “what?!” you can’t have a baby at this age. (I was 16) Then she stormed out of the room and left the house. She was so angry with me. She never had a supportive word to say about it to me. My sweet loving dad (who I, unfortunately, didn’t live with) came over and brought me a card to congratulate me. (He didn’t know my mother was abusive, she was very manipulative/controlling and played the victim). Long story short, I kept my baby girl, who is now eleven. Me and her father graduated highschool together and have been married for five years now (been together 12 years) and we have another child, her little brother Jay who is six and they are the best of friends/siblings. Something I longed for with mine.
