An illustrated version of my short story Even An Angel Can Fall. All images are accurate with the exception of the attic (which is just a random attic) and the one of Nazi soldiers (which is of real Nazi soldiers, but is taken out of context and not related to the Jewish persecution). I had a massive list written up sourcing all the images, but deviantART somehow deleted it from my description. I'll come back and re-find all my sources again sometime.
Wow, I'm not sure what to say. I know that You must have done some kind of research because of the information you had. [learned much the same in my Holocaust Class.] It was a Verry powerful story, and I wouldn't be all that surprised if it was true as well.
Only had one little tid bit that might have been wrong. the inmates that where told/volunteered to work the crematoria... yes they did get better food, rooms, clothes...But they also had to remove stuff from the bodies, along with burning them. Many of them committed suicide if I remember my Class correctly. I don't think to many where Killed by the SS.
Researched the hell out of this, yes. WWII is one of my historical focuses (along with the Cuban Missile Crisis and various ancient times). So no, not actually true, but glad it could be (well, no, I wouldn't be glad if this was true, but as a writer it's always nice to hear).
Thanks for the tip about the crematoria, I think I found something about those workers having to be disposed of but I'll bow to your knowledge. Thanks for reading and commenting!
Don't bow yet I'm just saying what I've heard/read. I took a lot of weird facts from that class.. Like the SS Tried to not go into the sleeping areas if they could help it. the fleas you see.
Its good to see people actually putting some kind research into stuff like the Holocaust and WWII, our teacher [and I've noticed this a bit too] has pointed out that more and more people are forgetting about it, or thinking its all fake. when there are less and less people from that time that remember it to prove them wrong. I personally don't see how people can say its just a hoax after seeing pictures like that, or reading first hand accounts or anything about it..
This is a wonderful work of both Visual Poetry and Prose. I would feature it today but hesitate for only one reason; the potographs you have used, and the graphics will need full attribution such as those provided for [stock] and [brush] components of visual media on dA. Images may be grouped if the attribution sources are the same. If links to those image components of the work are available and easily pasted into your 'Description' block for the work that would be nice for readers as well.
Please 'Note' me when you have accomplished this minor repair.
This was very emotive. It's interesting how distance and spaced the narrator feels from the story. It's almost as if the person has decided to tell it as a dream or a fiction so as not to relive the horrors. It was an interesting effect.
I didn't have a specific inspiration, but I read a story set in Auchwitz which prompted me to write my own, and the title and motif was inspired from a lyric form "Satellites" by September, but the plot just sort of came to me from the "even an angel can fall" phrase and the concentration camp idea.
