I mentioned this is the iconic images compilation post but let me just rant for a little bit.
This is a portrait of Istvan Reiner, taken shortly before he was killed in Auschwitz. Look at him. Look how ridiculously happy he looks. He’s playing with a card and hole puncher. He’s maybe 6 or 7 years old. I wonder about all the birthday’s and birthday present he missed out on. I wonder about all the best friends he might have made or about the tears that would have streaked down his face the first time he had his heart broken. I wonder about his future career, or how he would’ve proposed to his life-partner. I wonder if he’d grow up to be a doctor or a carpenter or an engineer. I wonder about how those same big, dark eyes would swell up with joy at the site of his very own child.
I wonder how someone can be so outright despicable as to pack him into a gas chamber and take away all of that.
Sometimes when my mom calls me from downstairs and I have absolutely NO idea what she said, I shout back “OK” and hope that’s enough.
what if it was a monster asking if it could eat your mother in her voice and you said OK
I have something for you all to keep you up all night. (You should thank me it’s final week season.)
So Ed Hermanski was a high school teacher, who started to tell an extremely scary story to his history class.
And by scary, I mean it was scary enough for it to be in a newspaper article and for many people requesting it to be made into a movie.
Hermanski tells kids at the start to leave if they become too frightened. A few actually exit early. Others, even honor students and tough jocks, cannot sleep afterward.
What’s REALLY mysterious about this story is how MANY people report extremely strange things happening afterwards. For example, the power turning on and off and mysterious noises.
I’ve attached an audio of the story. One student decided to record it one day. It’s a long listen and remember listen at your own risk.
The audio isn’t working on the link I posted because too many users on it at once, but someone suggested another working audio file
If this one crashes too, I’ll personally upload the audio file to tumblr
Also here’s some more information about the story itself
i’m listening to it and i’m 15 minutes in and so far it’s just really horrifying i’ve been getting so into creepy stuff like this lately i dunno why i do these things to myself
omfg holy shit sixpenceee a lot of things on your blog scare me but THIS, I took the time out to listen to this and omfg I am scarred for life
YOU GUYS NEED TO READ THESE HORRIFYING TESTIMONIALS
May they serve as a warning for those of you listening in the middle of the night.
This is the first time one of my own posts is scaring me.
Since so many people were requesting it, here is the transcript for the kimberly story, missing the first 10 minutes but everything else is great!
If you haven’t read/listened to this yet, I HIGHLY SUGGEST IT!
I live in Texas and I am going to listen to this on my way home from work… Wish me luck
