Thousands of photos like these exist from World War II, snapshots from England, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, America, everywhere the fighting happened or where its effects were felt. Even when the faces are anonymous, the impact registers through weary eyes, shells of buildings, gun-smoked landscapes. Some of the greatest photographs from this era--including Joe Rosenthal's of American soldiers raising the U.S. flag over Iwo Jima--were collected for Memories of World War II, an exhibit of pictures selected from the The Associated Press' archives. Memories was organized in Washington, D.C., in honor of the dedication of the National World War II Memorial, and its first tour stop is the Dallas Historical Society's Hall of State during the run of the State Fair of Texas. The photos range from soldiers taking communion on the battlefield to families fleeing their homes, all their possessions piled on a cart. There are happy moments, too: victory celebrations, people crowding the streets, flags waving as they rejoice. They're stories some people never got to tell but all of us should hear.
