An innocent German (or English) boy slaughtered by a futile pointless war - absurd - as is human existence

It made me weep :( . This is infinitely sad, and the story behind it is infinitely sadder. I'm glad somebody could put the issue at hand into more than words. I'm sure this painting will move people in a much deeper way than facts and figures could.

Magnified emotion, evocative of the horror that propelled it, yet imaged with such tenderness.
This one cuts into me more than anyone could imagine, memorial to my childhood.

I do really love that picture. It is so full of emotions.
When I saw it it has inspired me to write something which has to do with the topic the picture is dealing with.
