A stamp on the back of this picture from Japan reads April 25, 1945, on which date The Times had blaring headlines about the state of the war in Europe (it was winding down), and a smaller article at the bottom of the front page about an impasse at Okinawa, in the Pacific, that “American infantrymen” had brought to an end. “The fighting was heavy along the entire front as the doughboys moved cautiously from one fortification to another and there were as yet no indications of large gains,” The Times reported.

The Monument to the Martyrs in Damascus by Abdo Kass-Khout in 1985. It was built to remember those fallen for Syria. Inside, it contains a large atrium that is sunken into the ground, recalling a crypt. The dome represents heaven as understood by the ancient cultures of the Levant featured in the Quran and the Bible. It was thought that the sky was a cupola of water held up by great pillars over earth that separated us from heaven. This, combined with Arab architectural features, helps to define the Syrian identity and demonstrates their complex and historical heritage.
