Notorious People and Places

The people and places that live on in our memories - not for good reasons but because of how they shocked and saddened us all. Images of serial killers, mass murderers, despots and dictators, prisons, and the victims of these horrors. These people & places live on in infamy in our history.

There are the notorious killers: The Zodiac Killer, Ted Bundy, Jack the Ripper, Andrei Chikatilo, Charles Edmund Cullen, Dennis Raider, the BTK Murderer, Aileen Wuornos, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Charles Manson . . . Unfortunately, the list goes on and on. Then there are the notorious robbers: Bonnie and Clyde, Ma Barker, John Dillinger, Jesse James, Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd . . . Again, it's a long list. Of course, there are those who belonged to organized crime and street gangs: Sammy the Bull Gravano, “Mad Sam” DeStefano, Thomas “Tommy Karate” Pitera, Joseph “The Animal” Barboza, Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinksi, Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, Pablo Escobar . . . and once again, the names go on and on.

Then there are places that live in infamy: the Lawrence Massacre, the My Lai Massacre, Sobibór,, Treblinka, Auschwitz–Birkenau, the Cambodian Killing Fields, the World Trade Center . . . too many places, throughout history, have been the places of mass torture and killings. And we can't forget the prisons that held them all - if they were captured, not killed.

In each of these notorious people and places, there have been uncounted victims. The victims should be remembered more than the perpetrators and so, within these pages, we show the faces of those who have victimized others but we present as well the victims' faces - some are heartbreaking. Some say that history must be remembered in order to not repeat it. So let's remember!

From notorious criminals and prisons to the children who lost their lives in the Holocaust, these are the photos of those who live on in our minds and hearts.
