20 Oddly Disturbing Pictures From History

2. 2 Kids with a giant Easter Bunny in the US in 1953.

3. Children eat ice cream in New South Wales, Australia in 1933. The sign makes this picture.

4. A man leans up against a statue of a camel on a road outside Nanking, China in 1874.

5. A promotional picture from the Soviet state made film “The Godless Ones” in Russia in 1928.

13. Republican supporters toy with the corpse of a nun they dug up during the Spanish Civil War in 1936. They also desecrated many Catholic churches and destroyed key artifacts.

14. A young beggar no older than 12 receives money from an old man or “caretaker” in London, England in 1876. Pictures like these were shown to members of Parliament in the late 1800s to showcase the rampant problem of child poverty in London. The pictures included rag tag children sleeping in streets, a well known pregnant 10 or 11 year old prostitute, known groups of children thieves, and other similar pictures (that are easy to find, but poor quality pictures). Also, at least 2 members of Parliament in the late 1800s were also known to be “caretakers”.

15. Workers march behind the Nazi banner during a workers rally in Tokyo, Japan in 1961. They wanted the dissolution of the Socialist Party and for it to be replaced with an Ultra Nationalist party very similar to National Socialists (Nazis).

16. 22 Year old Anneliese Michel, who was diagnosed with epileptic psychosis (temporal lobe epilepsy) and had a long and painfully unsuccessful history of psychiatric treatment, shown here during her Catholic Exorcism in Germany in 1975. It also proved unsuccessful, as most experts say she was not possessed just really sick, and sadly she died the following year. The audio of her Exorcism is on youtube if you are up for some noises you didn’t know a human could make.

17. 2 Sisters pose for a picture in the US in 1926.

18. A woman takes the popular beehive hairdo a step further in the US in 1969.

19. 3 Witches and a tree on a float in Anaheim, CA, US in 1957.

20. Adolf Hitler with Joseph Goebbels daughter Helga in Germany in 1936. Hitler was close with all 6 of the young Goebbels children right up until his death on April 30th, 1945. The next day, the Goebbels killed all 6 of their children (the eldest was 13) and then themselves. A surviving adult child of Magda Goebbels, Harald Quandt, survived the war and was not present to possibly stop what his mother and step father did.
