Moving Photos of WWII Couples
Here are some romantically special images of people in love being torn apart before and reunited after one half of them has been taken away by one war or another.
Although some images are poignant and moving, others must be viewed with a hint of scepticism. For example, THAT famous kiss in Times Square after Japan surrendered and ended WWII was an expression of excitement between two strangers and not the loving, passionate embrace between a long-lost couple, like the myth once had us believe. It is, no less, still a lovely image.
Some of the images in this collection do feel staged; but I'm sure they are representing what went on between real couples, real people, going through real anguish and elation when there were no cameras present.
Other images are truly brilliant though; perfectly timed pieces of human history captured on film.
Showcased by Fubiz, these images add extra poignancy to an element of wartime that the textbooks often forget.
