Yep its a bloke in a tractor. Simply a snapshot, probably taken with a Kodax box Brownie by his pal. Who? British Army grunt as it turns out. Set in Europe. Joined the army he did and here he is at its end, literally shovelling up heaps of bodies in a Nazi Death Camp. You need to look carefully they are so emaciated and starved they barely look human any more. The bodies? Jews for the vast majority. This picture as elequantly as any sums up why we should – no sorry must remember the vile hatred of the other that led to this horror – still well within living memory.
Difficult to deny, unacceptable to repeat.
So remember and do not let it happen again.
