For centuries, life’s big questions have puzzled some of the world’s greatest minds. The need for love, marriage and life-long commitment. The yearning to reproduce and the survival of the human race. The search for a vocation, the desire to find happiness and the inevitable end – death. Karl has never given a seconds thought to any of these issues. Now he’s turned forty he thinks it’s time he did. Jammy Toast have sent him off around the world to see how other people deal with life’s big questions and if these questions are such a big deal anyway.

Jewish school children, Mukachevo, Ukraine, circa 1935-38.

Ihave no idea why I chose this picture for Picture Of The Day. I think perhaps that I have a preconceived idea that if you see Jewish children from the late 1930s, then they are usually on their way to a concentration camp and/or probably death. However these kids are smiling and laughing and the child in the centre has an impish kind of look on her face. Not exactly what I would be expecting if I saw the photograph’s [/caption] before I saw the photograph. It just has a certain quality which I cannot put into words. Feel free to try yourselves…
