By Inspirion @GoodMood20

Photographer Peter Macdiarmid gathered modern photos from Europe and layered them on top of historic pictures of WWI, to give a sense of how much, or, in same cases, how little, Europe has changed since it was destroyed by devastating WWI.

In this global war, millions have lost lives. To be exact sixty-five million soldiers fought. Nine million killed in combat. Nearly 20 million was wounded. Even more people was left homeless and some cities were, literally, demolished and burned to the ground. This year, on July 28th,the 100 year anniversary of the declaration of World War I will be marked.
