The German dirigible Hindenburg crashes to earth, tail first, in flaming ruins after exploding on May 6, 1937, at the U.S. Naval Station in Lakehurst, N.J. The 1920s and 1930s were the golden age of dirigibles which crossed the Atlantic Ocean in about three days -- faster than a ship. The Hindenburg was the largest airship ever built at 804 feet long and flew up to 85 miles per hour while held aloft by hydrogen, which was highly flammable. The disaster, which killed 36 people after a 60-hour transatlantic flight from Germany, ended regular passenger service by the lighter-than-air airships.  (AP Photo/Murray Becker)

Czech patriots in Prague, the Nazi stronghold, rose in revolt in an endeavour to wrest the capital from the Germans. After driving the civilians from their houses, S.S. troops engaged in a mass slaughter. Along the highway from Benesov to Prague, anti-tank barricades were built, while German tanks ringed the city. Street fighting ensued, and many patriots were killed. Patriot snipers were posted behind barricades, in cellars, and in attics, pending the arrival of Russian troops. Overwhelmed with emotion, this Czech mother kisses one of the Russian soldiers in Prague, Czech Republic on May 5, 1945, who fought to free her beloved home. (AP Photo)
