WWII places – then and now


History is often these days being considered as dealing with past things, places and events and most of the people would find it hard to simply connect with the past, in many cases their own past. Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov has in my opinion greatly helped to bridge this time gap by connecting today’s places with past events. By carefully combining recent photographs of famous (as well as less famous) places with the historical photographs he has created unique and interesting collection showing us what these places looked like during WWII and brought them to life.

You can find the collection here, it is well worth looking at…
