The church bell embossed with a swastika and the text: 'Everything for the Fatherland Adolf Hitler' in the Jakobskirche village church pictured on June 13, 2017 in Herxheim, Germany. For 82 years the 1930s-era church bell, cast when Germany was ruled by Adolf Hitler, hung in the 1,000-year-old church tower without attracting much notice until a local newspaper reported on its existence. Now the village residents are struggling to figure out what to do with it. Some, including the mayor, claim replacing it would be too expensive and removing the text and swastika would distort the bell's ring, while others, including the church organist, are appalled and are demanding something be done.

Given the enormous death toll of the ongoing war in Syria, it is easy to overlook—or fail to attribute importance to—the psychological well-being of those who have endured.

TODDINGTON, UNITED KINGDOM - OCTOBER 19: A brown rat seen entering the lorry park on October 19, 2016 in Toddington, England. There is a massive infestation of Brown rats at the Toddington Services on the M1 motorway. The Brown rat (rattus norvegicus) is the carrier of many diseases including leptospirosis and Weil's disease. The rats appear to live in the boundary between the service station and the lorry park and feed on what the lorry drivers throw out for them. The ground behind the lorries is strewn with everything from discarded paper to food stuffs. The toilets are just 100m away and there are bins all around the site. The place smells and is like a latrine with drivers peeing all around their vehicles. In general the site is clean and tidy apart from this area. Stand still for a moment and the rats appear in broad daylight, often several at a time gorging on the free food.
