Difference and Adversity are David Hinton’s translation.  These photos are powerful images of humanity’s worse exploitation of differences and experience of adversity at Dachau concentration camp during WWII.  In addition to starvation and torture, prisoners wore these symbols to ‘divide and conquer’ the population.

Hinton’s detailed translation emphasizes difference bringing ‘good fortune’ and adversity bringing acclaim.  That calls for uplifting photos….next time…
