This image is of 1945 During World War II.

A Japanese boy stood in front of a cremation pyre and waited for his turn to cremate his dead little brother.
Joe O’Donnell, The American photographer who clicked this picture said, that the child was biting his lips so hard to prevent crying that blood was dripping down the corner of his mouth.
When The guard asked, ′′Give me the load you carry on your back′′, the Child replied, IT IS NOT A CARGO, HE’S MY BROTHER′′.
In Japan even today, this image is used as a symbol of strength. So painful yet so inspiring.
