A German soldier returns home to Frankfurt am Main after the end of the War, 1946. Only to find his family no longer there.

In 1946, a German prisoner of war returned to his home city of Frankfurt. Years of battle was behind him, not to mention being held captive by the enemy. Yet, as this picture from the photographer Tony Vaccarro shows, years of war and confinement would only ever pale in comparison to the pain he felt that day when discovering that his wife and children, people who had no doubt gave him hope of a brighter tomorrow, had all perished.

Soldiers sacrifice their mental health at war. Seeing all of the gruesome gore, witnessing mass deaths and being involved in stressful situations often leaves a soldier with post-traumatic stress disorder. When a soldier returns home they often cannot go back to their lives like everything is perfectly fine. They have to alter their life because of the war. War can cause men to suffer.

Trench warfare was brutal and unforgiving, Hundreds of thousands returned home with what is today identified as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, yet the literature contains scant information about postwar psychological troubles with violent outcomes.
