Today, I was doing some research about gun control in Nazi Germany when I read Wikipedia’s page about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. On this page, Wikipedia uses the famous photo of the “little boy with his hands up.”
The photo, shown above, is very controversial; I blogged about it at

Some of the new people who have joined the discussions on my blog might want to weigh in on this controversy.
Here is my last word on the subject: Wikipedia should not put controversial photos on its pages. This irritates people, especially me.
The photo below would be much better. The caption on the photo is “German soldiers lead Jews captured during the Warsaw ghetto uprising to the assembly point for deportation. Poland, May 1943”
