A photograph of the bombing of Hiroshima from the ground; taken just over 1.5 miles from ground zero.
A man throwing a dead body at the morgue of the general hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, after the 2010 earthquake.
Thats more of a thoughtless image. People die and in a disaster the bodies are a problem, most already know that
UN troops pollute drinking water with sewage causing deaths of 8000
Excellent post groen
Here's another Hiroshima image, apparently taken half an hour after the bomb was dropped.
Surprised this has not been posted already
All around London is burning during the blitz yet one of its most symbolic buildings stands untouched by the chaos
On the eve of World War II, curators at the Louvre swathed the museum's most priceless painting — the Mona Lisa— in layers of waterproof paper, boxed it up and spirited it to the French countryside for safekeeping. Leonardo da Vinci's smiling maiden moved another five times during the war before she was brought, safe and sound, back to the Louvre.

Genocide of Ukrainians, why is this never talked about? every year it's the holocaust which killed far less and was no more cruel. Oh we know why it's because Bolshevik Jews were behind it.
Just a brief correction. The picture you posted is from povolzhye famine in Russia in winter 1921, and depicts bodies before mass burial at the cementary of Buzuluk in Volga region.
It has nothing to do with Ukraine or holodomor, although it is widely used to dramatize holodomor story. That's for starters, before we get into discussion whether jewish influence of any kind played part in Ukrainian famine and whether holocaust "killed far less".
Cool gun, I wonder if Gunsmoke made it?
USA has a much larger population than all of the compared countries in that info graphic. USA violent crime per capita is lower than most of those countries.
Using the figures in the poster and population stats from CIA.gov we get the following:
Country (Deaths per million people)
United States (34.2)
So even adjusted for population the US has a much higher gun death rate.
Separate names with a comma.
