"Know Where You Stand" is a series of photos created by the American, self-taught artist, Seth Tara for the History Channel. The idea behind these images is pretty clear: the beach where you're now relaxing and having a good time with your friends may be a beach where our ancestors fought and died in the World War II. So, don't take everything you have for granted and always remember that your grandparents or great-grandparents fought and died for your freedom!

The images are quite powerful. Tara mixes historical photos of a certain place with modern pictures of the same place. So you see a group of lovers in front of the Eiffel Tower and Adolf Hitler morphing in the same picture.

So, don't forget our history! Don't forget all the ugly, bad things that happened and might happen again! Just watch!

Aaand, there are also some Easter Eggs inside there. Can you spot them?
